Many Thanks





 

Thank you to our friends, donors, and allies of Afromusée, who attended the information and pre-launch of the nascent institution on November 20th, 2021.

Many thanks to Wines of South Africa for their invaluable sponsorship.


Director Guy Mushagalusa Chigoho introduced and thanked his team who have been committed to making this museum a reality. Some challenges were expressed but the team was able to provide an update on their progress and preparations for the official launch of the museum.


We had the honor to hear the encouraging speech of the High Commissioner of South Africa to Canada, Her Excellency Sibongiseni Dlamini-Mntambo. We want to express our gratitude to Her Excellency who took the time to be present with us at this pivotal moment for Afromusée.


We also want to recognize and highlight a few other important figures that were present and gave touching speeches that night. Secretary of the board of directors of the Afromusée, Jean-François Leclerc, the Mayor-elect of the district of Côte-des-Neiges – Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Gracia Kasoki-Kathawa, the President of the Round Table of the Month of Black History, Mr. Michael Farkas, Princess Juliette Biakeu general manager of the Montreal-Africa Table, and the sculptor Jean-Martin Afromusee's first major donor.


The pragmatic and poetic speech of Mrs. Coumba Ngom, president of company F, moved us all.


Take a look back at this memorable evening.
