During its general assembly, Afromuseum’s members reassigned members of the previous board to different administrative posts. During this reshuffle, the member’s combined skills in museology, African and afrodescendant cultures, finance, marketing and accounting will enable us to put the new museum on a solid base.
It is a pleasure to announce the nomination to the presidency of Frantz Voltaire, an internationally recognized cultural and intellectual activist who has given many years to researching and highlighting the phenomenon of Africanness around the world, with a particular emphasis on the Caribbean, the Antilles and the two Americas. The board is also delighted to be able count on the presence of Zab Magoungou of the Danse NyataNyata company. She has long played a key role in publicly highlighting African cultures.
