Lee said I am TransAfrican will connect people in the United States, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean to each other in an effort to form alliances that will help embrace a common culture and fight common enemies. The campaign is designed to find the 'oneness' that unites the person in economic struggle in the U.S. with the person suffering under the same strain in other parts of the world, she said.
TransAfrica has produced a 30 second video public service announcement (PSA) that features people from all over the African world calling on the community to celebrate this historic declaration. It features African-Americans and people from Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, Venezuela, Malawi, and other nations. The PSA is spoken in Spanish, French, Kreyol and English, and is announced by Danny Glover, TransAfrica's Board Chair. The PSA is now airing on BET's Centric Television Network and is slated for local stations across the country. To view the video, visit www.washingtoninformer.com.
