Morehouse College’s Africana Studies Program in collaboration with Friends of the Congo-Atlanta is proud to announce a Memorial for Patrice Lumumba on Friday, January 17 at 5:55 PM in African American Hall of Fame. At 5:55 pm, we will gather at the Martin Luther King, Jr, monument to offer libation and then proceed upstairs for the program. In honor of the King Holiday and Black History month, the program will feature Morehouse Congo Curriculum students and Lumumba Scholars ‘skyped in’ from Kinshasa, DRC, as well as, Rev. Mark Ogunwale Lomax of First Afrikan Church to discuss the shared legacy of human rights activism between Africa and its diaspora, current human rights challenges in America and Congo, and what scholar-activists and citizens can do today to advance both King and Lumumba’s shared cause.
