“As we embrace the cosmic shift transpiring on the planet, we bear witness to walls of separation fading into the realization of one global community.
The role of Africa is integral to this process.
Not only because it represents the birthplace of civilization but because the land and its people have served as “global canaries” in the coal mine of our collective conscience. Africa, is a symbol of how inconceivable beauty and unimaginable horrors can shape the landscape of the human spirit and affect the planet. Therefore, you cannot have a conversation about the transition toward a just food system without first exploring the implications of a just Africa. Before a seed is planted one must first ensure that the soil is healthy and in many ways Africa epitomizes the soil essential for the growth of humanity.”
