SADC: Questions & Big Upcoming Africa Events!



Questions & Big Upcoming Africa Events!

Greetings Colleagues,

So far, it appears people enjoy the new email look. The Facebook and Google groups have already been created, to join Facebook group simply click on the follow us button at the bottom right of this email. We are going ahead with putting on a debate at a quieter location at the next event (still looking for a place, but I am hoping we may be able to commandeer the National Museum of African Art).  In the meantime, here are some questions to ponder (pardon the simple polling tech, we are still working out the kinks, please consider "1" no and "10" yes), especially as more and more people have been contacting us.

Should we limit membership to anyone either currently in the DC-area or based in the DC-area?

lowest 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   highest

Should we not limit membership by geographic location?

lowest 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   highest

Should we hold an event every month?

lowest 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   highest

Should we hold an event every two months?

lowest 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   highest

Should we invite representatives from embassies in the area?

lowest 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   highest

Finally, be sure to check out the DC Africa Tweetup (hosted by Prof. Semhar Araia,  a big name in African diaspora affairs) and Prof. Horace Campbell's book presentation (who was my professor back at Syracuse and who subscribes to some old-school radical Pan-Africanism, which means he always has interesting things to say). As always, please feel free to offer comments about the email.
