Building on the momentum of The Thread: Conversations Beyond the Return series, Tastemaker Africa will host the 4th installment on Sunday, May 24th. Birthright AFRICA is proud to be a supporting partnering once again and invite you to join the event that will be held virtually from 12PM – 6PM EST. Follow our Instagram to receive the registration link as soon as its available.

The Thread is a traveling series of multidisciplinary conversations unpacking Pan-Africanism in the modern context in a post-“Year of Return” moment for the culture. Not long ago, we were reveling in a resurgence of African and black identity being explored and exalted. We are keeping that energy going harnessing our collective power, sharing experiences, and creating pathways for us to thrive.  

We last convened on Sunday, April 19th, where we had over 2200+ attendees and 45+ speakers across tech, music, art, and culture – including Elon D. Johnson (Senior Creative Executive, Tyler Perry Studios), Jidenna (Artist and Educator), Irungu Houghton(Executive Director, Amnesty International Kenya), and Funa Maduka (Director of International Original Films, Netflix). In case you’re curious, you can view the full program from the 4/19 event here + the 🔥live reactions.

In this 4th edition, we’re enrolling engaging speakers to add to the dynamic conversation and dive into what’s impacting our community on the continent and around the world.
