Africa Day provides us with an occasion to celebrate the history of Mother Africa, our continent, rich in heritage and culture. Similarly, our department is blessed in having a diverse complement of staff and students from all across her land. As we and our fellow Africans continue to face numerous challenges, let us reflect on how our diverse culture and heritage can be leveraged for positive change on our beloved continent.
