Has the modern African lost their sense of African identity? Have the struggles of their ancestral representatives to achieve political, socio-economic, and cultural liberation from European imperialism diminished in the face of an ever-growing global village? It can be argued that the African tree no longer bears fruit to nourish her children. Moreover, until a conscious effort is made to rejuvenate and nurture her roots. The once majestic tree will surely shrivel and wither away… her sweet nectar lost to all generations to come.

As the Institute of Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), we are dedicated to the pursuit and dissemination of Pan-African knowledge across Africa and its Diaspora. As part of our mandate on strategic engagement, in conjunction with the University of Johannesburg (UJ), we aim to contribute to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4: Quality Education, with an objective to implement the Wasomi Wa Kiafrika virtual Book Club for UJ students, which seeks to spotlight indigenous knowledge in order to enhance their perspective on African history, literature, heritage and the concept of Pan-Africanism.

The Wasomi Wa Kiafrika virtual Book Club will be launched on Thursday, 31 March 2022. We encourage all UJ students to become part of this exciting program. To be the next organ for Pan-Africanist knowledge. There are monthly prizes to be won.

To join the book club, please sign our recruitment form using the link below and follow us on our IPATC social media platforms. We hope to see you there.
