The Foundation for Democracy Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 Africa. Amara Essy Chairman, African Union: Rodney Slater, Former U. Several hundred years ago, many of Africa's strongest, healthiest children were sold into slavery and taken across the Atlantic Ocean by force. It is unlikely that either the slave sellers or the slave buyers considered the impact these transactions would have on the world.
The millions of slaves who survived the so-called Middle Passage enabled European nations and countries in the Americas to advance from agrarian societies to today's era of hand-held computers, space travel and virtual reality. Meanwhile, the mighty kingdoms of Africa were slowly picked apart, as tribe was set against tribe until almost all were lost to colonial domination. Only Ethiopia and Liberia were left to govern themselves, as the powers of Europe divided the continent among them.
In the New World, Africa's children toiled and died in bondage until the shame of slavery finally led their captors to free them Torreon mature women ads Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 yoke, yet maintain them in a perpetual state of second-class citizenship. In the Caribbean, black nations rose and provided Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 for a time.
In the United States, black citizens struggled for years to grudgingly gain political and economic power, and this struggle also proved to give sustenance to Africans pressing for independence. Canada long provided a haven for blacks seeking freedom from oppression in the Western Hemisphere, but black Canadians still lack political and economic power.
Elsewhere in the Americas, blacks comprise an unknown percentage of the population in nations such as Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia and even Cuba and Brazil, and thus have not realized their political or economic potential.

Efforts to reunite the black world, such as those of Marcus Garvey and his Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 Negro Improvement Association, raised hopes for a time, and while these efforts did not achieve their ultimate goal then, they kept the spark of freedom burning in the hearts of Africa's children.
While the OAU helped speed the independence of African nations, it did not reach out to Laides African Diaspora in a meaningful way. Despite the longings of Africa descendants on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, Africa and the Diaspora didn't unite partly because of tomight impact of the Cold War and the preoccupation on the continent with aligning with various foreign power blocs. African leaders too often acted in their Adult singles dating in Waynoka interests and in the interest of their sponsors rather than in the interest of Africans or Laies in the Diaspora.
Once the Cold War ended, democracy and good governance emerged as leading imperatives, much like Nelson Mandela emerged from prison to lead South Africa into a leadership role on the continent. Inspired by Mandela and other new leaders in Africa, the Foundation for Democracy in Africa was established in with the mandate of helping to prepare Africa's new leaders for the global economy.

The next step will be consolidation of the Western Hemisphere Diaspora Network. Once the Diaspora has been consulted and linkages to the African Union have been firmly established, it will be possible that the dreams of so many who sought collaboration among the descendants of Africa will finally come to pass. Shortly before the AU Diaspora forum was convened, a U.
Ambassador to Nigeria Howard Jeter warned of the lesson of Liberia, in which members of the Diaspora returned home only to treat the very people with whom they were reunited as they had been treated during slavery in the United States. Jeter told the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs that there must be a new paradigm for Diaspora-Africa interactions that benefits both parties.
There is a wealth of financial, technical and intellectual expertise in the Diaspora," Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 explained.

After years of dreams, participants expressed eagerness for genuine cooperation across the Atlantic. Laries Ambassador Jeter described it in his speech, the Diaspora is composed of those who came across the Atlantic unwillingly and those who came willingly much later.
Both elements of the Diaspora have much to offer. At this point Lades time, realizing the potential of the renewed relationship to be as mutually beneficial as it promises is within the hands of those now involved with the process we have begun. After World War II, support for Pan-Africanism, defined as the movement for the unity of African descendants on the continent and throughout the African Diaspora, ran high throughout Africa.
Inthe British colony of the Gold Coast became the independent nation Otnight Ghana, and its Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417, Kwame Nkrumah, convened the first Conference of Independent African States, and attended by eight countries, the following year in Accra.
The question of an African union versus an African association raised in Accra was taken up again at the second Conference of Independent African States in This division was further heightened inthrough separate meetings of African power blocs.
Nkrumah and other leaders convened a meeting of independent African nations meeting in Casablanca, Morocco, to discuss a union of African nations. Those who did not respond to the call to discuss this Union, spearheaded by Houphouet-Boigny and Tubman, convened a subsequent meeting to discuss a looser association of African nations in Monrovia, Liberia.
Ina compromise was reached between the Casablanca and Monrovia groups with the creation of the Organization of African Unity in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Early on, the OAU oloking the lead in promoting the end of colonialism in Africa, especially by opposing the continued rule of the Portuguese over their five colonies and white minority rule in South Africa. The OAU also mediated several African disputes.Housewives Seeking Nsa Nashville NorthCarolina 27856
However, the non-intervention clause in the OAU charter, along with Naked Hayward girl opposition to full democracy by some African leaders prevented the OAU from playing a mediator role in upcoming African crises. Moreover, no progress had been made in the effort to promote economic and political union on the continent. By the late s, it had become clear than a new paradigm was in order if the continental African organization was to remain relevant Ladies looking sex tonight Deep river Connecticut 6417 a time when the Europe, Asia and the Americans were forming economic blocs with an eye toward political union.
When African leaders again raised the issue of a "United States of Africa" inthe time was ripe for action. When the required 36th OAU member two-thirds of the membership ratified the constitutive act on April 26,the African Union became a legal reality.
