Tune in for livestreaming from the UN beginning at 5:30 PM EST, Monday, September 23rd.
On Monday, September 23, Okayafrica joins ONE, Transparency International, and the United Nations Millennium Challenge in presenting an interactive conversation on people-powered, technology-facilitated activism (termed factivism by our friends at ONE). The discussion takes place as a part of a series of events associated with next week’s 68th session of the UN General Assembly. Al Jazeera journalist Femi Oke will moderate a panel of activists from around Africa and the diaspora that includes Gbenga Akinnagbe, Juan Elias Chebly, Boniface Mwangi, Tarik Nesh-Nash, Japheth Omojuwa, Taiye Selasi, and Bright Simons. We’ll be chatting with panelists in the days leading up to the event. Check out the event details below and stay tuned for interviews throughout the week. For more from the ONE Campaign catch up on their agit8 protest song project featuring live videos of Spoek Mathambo, the Brother Moves On, and Freshlyground.
