For Africa Month, the Africa Policy Journal in partnership with The Africa Soft Power Project is hosting a conversation to explore the transformative potential of Soft Power for African peoples. From music, movies and fashion to culture and lifestyle, the influence of soft power is evident around the globe. How can Africa and Africans harness the latent power of this resource to shape a compelling narrative that influences policy, governance, and leadership?
In conversation will be Nkiru Balonwu, Founder and Creative Director of The Africa Soft Power Project, Ebba Kalondo, Spokesperson to the Chairperson, African Union Commission, Desta Haile, Deputy Director, Royal African Society, and Tisa Smart-Washington, Tax Commissioner, Rockdale County. The conversation will be moderated by Adaobi Ezeokoli, Editor-In-Chief of the Africa Policy Journal.
