Africa: My Heritage



Africa Day commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (now known as the African Union) on this day, 25 May, in 1963. It aims to celebrate African unity. It is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as around the world.

Africa Day continues to be celebrated both in Africa and around the world, mostly on 25 May (although in some cases these periods of celebrations can be stretched out over a period of days or weeks).

Africa is the world’s second largest and second most-populous continent. Africa is considered by most paleoanthropologists to be the oldest inhabited territory on Earth, with the human species originating from the continent As stated by Wikipedia. Africa hosts a large diversity of ethnicities, cultures and languages.

Africa is the most multilingual continent in the world, and it is not rare for individuals to fluently speak not only multiple African languages, but one or more European ones as well.

We celebrate our rich African heritage, a continent full of ethnicities, cultures, languages, magic, history, humanity, good African food and cooking styles, arts, crafts, folklore, diverse fabric and attire, natural hair, rich music and dance, spirituality, tradition, nature, strong men, beautiful women, respect and pride!

It’s in Africa, that a child can see an elder, who he or she is not related to in any way and call out in respect “Uncle” “Aunty” and say “Good morning” or “Good day”, it’s in Africa, one lives with his neighbors as family, it’s in Africa, everyone cares for another.

It’s in Africa, one can walk in to any home and get offered food, shelter, and clothing. It’s in Africa, children respect their parents for as long as they live, you can’t be an African and have the guts to insult your parents or call an emergency number because you’ve been disciplined.

It’s in Africa, you show extreme thankfulness to others By receiving gifts with both hands, in Africa, you don’t interrupt when elders are discussing. In Africa, the right hand is for eating food and the left hand is reserved for the unsanitary task.

Africa is known to have a very rich culture. Africans are extremely gracious and caring people, ready to go the extra mile to respect and service others. I for one, would have been very jealous if i were to be anything else but African!
