After been announced as the Ambassador of the proposed Pan African Heritage World Museum project, the first winner of BET’s Best International Flow act at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards, Sarkodie, together with American rapper and singer Mos Def, (also an Ambassador of the museum project), will deliver unmatch performances at the launch of one of the most important projects of cultural and historical significance of our time, The Pan-African Heritage World Museum.

The vision for the museum including plans to raise $30 million to complete the project will be unveiled at the launch. President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo will be delivering the keynote address. Other speakers include Eminent African Traditional Leaders, some of the major Scholars on the Academic Council, and Coordinators from across the world.

The virtual conference which is being organized by pan-African media company Face2face Africa, a partner of the project, will take place on Monday, September 21st from 11am to 12:30pm EST.

The Pan-African World Museum will be a uniquely curated virtual and physical space located in Ghana, West Africa. The museum is dedicated to sharing the true story of Africa and its people under the watchful eye of the world’s most noted scholars from human creation to present day. The vision of the museum is to curate, preserve and communicate the history, ideals, philosophy, and cultural heritage of people of African descent within a 21st century context of social, economic and political development.

With a projected completion date of 2022, the museum is supported by an international NGO governance model with board of directors and the most prolific group of academic scholars overseeing the development. It has been endorsed by the government of Ghana, UNESCO, the African Union, the Association of African Universities, and more.

“After centuries of separation, people of African descent have an obligation to share a common space that helps to bridge the wide gap that exists among them as a result of deliberate mis-education and historical oppression.

The Pan African World Heritage Museum fulfills this obligation,” said Honorable Kojo Yankah, founder of the African University College of Communications (AUCC).

“Centuries ago when enslaved Africans walked through the “Door Of No Return” in Cape Coast to a world unknown, it was not simply an abduction of human resource. It was a symbolic moment that severed ties between those home and away.

At Face2face Africa, the quest has been to mend these ties as well as be the loudest voice telling the story of Africans separated by chains and by choice.

And that is why we are proud to be a part of a historic Pan-African Heritage World Museum project in Winneba, not far from the Elmina Slave Castle,” said CEO of Face2face Africa, Sandra Appiah while affirming their confirmation to partner this event

The event is free and open to the public. To learn more about the Pan-African World Museum and how you can support, visit pahw.org or email info@pahw.org.
