Black History Festival 2024 Revealed

The 2024 edition of the Black History Festival has announced a four-day event, scheduled to take place from February 21, open to people of African descent from all six regions of Africa and the Americas.

Themed “The Africa we want in a global set-up – Rebuilding the Trans-Atlantic Trade ties for the socio-economic and cultural advancement of the peoples of Africa and the Americas,” the festival will be held at the Columbus Airport Marriott Hotel in Ohio, United States.

Organized by the collaborative effort of the Bureau for International Development, Exchange, and Commerce (BIDEC) and the Young Africa Media Center (formerly YALI TV), main collaborators include the African Union Mission to the USA, Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), One Voice Consortium, and the Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce.

The festival aims to bring together speakers, panelists, moderators, or delegates from across Africa, the Americas, and the global African Diaspora, targeting over 1,000 attendees. It commemorates the enduring relationship between governments, the private sector, industries, civil society, and people of African descent through exchange programs.

The African Diaspora, with over 350 million people, is considered the largest “country” after China and India, playing a significant role in the overall development of the African continent. In the United States, approximately 43 million people are of black heritage, representing 13% of the total population. The festival believes these figures can be a force for positive change.

Expectations for the 2024 edition include representing the core interests of the socio-economic values of Africa, its bilateral partners, and the African Diaspora. The festival aims to reinforce and rediscover long-standing connections, fostering collaboration and alignment of shared interests between Africa, the Americas, and other bilateral partners. The event will have a pre-event mission trip, exhibitions, vetting of exhibitors, promotion for attendees, and the main event with various activities.

The festival’s lineup includes Innovation and Technology Day, Made in Africa Expo, History, Heritage, and Culture Day, US-Africa Trade and Development Forum, African Entertainment and Networking Event, Tour of Columbus/Ohio, Black History Makers Gala Night, and a concluding Thanksgiving Service.

The organizers anticipate both direct and indirect impacts on stakeholders, seeking to promote trade, development, cultural values, and history. The event aims to set the tone for Africa and its Diaspora to connect for policy reforms, trade treaties, professional exchanges, tourism, and more.

The festival will host Ambassadors of the African Union Member States to the United States, U.S. government officials, representatives of U.S. government initiatives and funds directed towards African development, representatives of African government trade agencies, investment, and export, representatives of corporations from the U.S. and Africa, US Exchange Alumni, representatives of Diasporan Agencies, and the general public. The initiative aims to reach at least 1,000 physical participants and 100,000 to 1 million virtual viewers worldwide.
