Venez Extols African Contribution


The Catedra Libre Africa, a conference to exchange information about Afro-descendants in Venezuela, opened in Caracas on Thursday as part of endeavors to understand and work toward South-South cooperation.

Organizers said participants are discussing African history and its contribution to national culture, the fight against discrimination, and the development of Afro-descendants’ expressions.

Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Reinaldo Bolivar asserted 'this event is included in the Diplomacy of Peoples and the Africa Agenda my office has been promoting for 15 months.'

Bolivar stated that mechanisms such as the Catedra Libre Africa should be created for cooperation among nations, so university teachers and students can further their knowledge and bring it to other education and community levels.
