Get ready, New York City, for the biggest Africa-focused event this summer! Premier Pan-African media company Face2Face Africa has officially announced the dates for its 2016 Pan-African Weekend (PAW) in New York.
The Pan-African Weekend is Face2Face Africa’s signature annual event and one of the most-prestigious gatherings for the celebration of pan-African achievement and excellence. A powerful and sensational action-packed three-day event, PAW was created to highlight the individuals and ideas that are transforming Africa, while celebrating the pioneers, trailblazers, and leaders who have paved the way for the next generation.
The 2016 edition, which is set to take place in New York City July 8 to July 10, will mark the 5th-year anniversary of Face2Face Africa.
