As Chad McClymonds noted in Africa is a Country a few months ago, San Francisco has an odd relationship to Africa. There are strong African immigrant communities here, but it’s hard to find fora to connect with people with ties to the continent or simply an interest in it.
In hopes of lessening this disconnect, I’ve been compiling a list of Africa-related resources and events around the Bay Area. Check these out, and let me know if I’ve missed any (or if you’ll be attending any of the events!).
- African Advocacy Network
- Africa & Friends Meetup
- Bay Area International Link
- Congolese Drum & Dance Camps*
- Museum of the African Diaspora
- Priority Africa Network
- World Affairs Council of Northern California
*With thanks to Caity Monroe for these suggestions!
