"In proclaiming this Decade, the international community is recognizing that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected."
- United Nations
The Yardie Skeptics are back this Sunday, August 9th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaican time) to discuss the inauguration of the International Decade on People of African Descent 2015-2024. What are the goals of this initiative? Why are we still chanting "Black lives matter" a whole four decades after the civil rights movement? Will the lived realities of Afrodescended persons improve in any meaningful way over the next 10 years, or are we destined to suffer under the heal of racism?
Joining us live on air will be Prof. Verene Shepherd, professor of social history and director of Gender and Development studies at UWI, Mona, and Alison Moses, founder and president of RICA Diaspora LLC, a business consultancy firm geared for persons of African descent. We want to hear from you folks of African descent - what do want for yourselves as a group over the next ten years?
