Blackness is often associated with danger and/or vulnerability, we challenge this perception and offer an opportunity to appreciate and benefit from accurate representations of blackness.
We aim to become the biggest uniquely African platform in Asia to connect and build communities across ethnic groups, gender, socio-economic status, etc., and facilitate value-exchange between these communities.
We champion an African perspective, especially the need for consciousness of the power dynamics rooted in colonialism and the need for self-love. We emphasize the value and need of an African perspective in today’s uncertain world.
We welcome and appreciate different perspectives
We value curiosity
We encourage and cultivate stepping into other’s shoes and see the world through their own eyes
We prioritize dignity in our interactions
It is a fun and family-friendly space to find heartwarming African food and direct connection to the local African community. The center is for everyone, where they can freely express themselves and their ideas.
The Africa Center is a turning point for the African communities within Hong Kong, and for those who wish to learn and integrate with the community not just within the city, but through out the African diaspora.
I value the “African Literature Book Club” as I value Women’s Day and Black History Month because African literature deserves a spotlight.
