Africa Talks is a monthly community lecture series organized in collaboration with the UW African Studies Program. The goal is to provide a platform to discuss insights, perspectives, and current events related to the African continent and diaspora. We believe this series can facilitate meaningful engagement within our diverse community around issues of mutual interest and importance.  Africa Talks provides a platform for sharing and celebrating the rich and diverse cultures of Africa, promoting cross-cultural understanding and appreciation of African traditions, languages, art, and music.
