The director of the National Association of Afro-American Studies and Affiliates, Lemuel Berry, explained to the press that the three-day forum will present studies on the current economic, political, social and educational situation of native, Afro-American, Asian and Latino communities, among others.
Berry said that Panama is hosting for the third consecutive year these forums in which more information associated with global research on the Afro-Panamanian diaspora is acquired.
The event, sponsored by the Tourism Promotion Agency, the National Secretariat for the Development of Afro-Panamanian Peoples and the University of Panama, among other organizations, he added, also allows students to access through social networks to conferences by experts of the highest level.
The exchange will include the participation of more than 40 researchers and specialists from the United States, Central America, Panama, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia, who will give some 30 lectures on these topics.
For Berry, after two years of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this will be a new opportunity to hear official reports from governments involved in community development and their reports related to the Afro population and other cultures.
