We believe the success of Afro-Americans is bound up with the emancipation of all African peoples and also other dependent peoples and laboring classes everywhere – also in espanol

The idea of foreign policy advocacy organization germinated at the Black Leadership Conference convened by the Congressional Black Caucus in September, 1976.  The conference concluded that the conspicuous absence of African Americans in high-level international affairs positions, and the general neglect of African and Caribbean priorities, could only be corrected by the establishment of a private advocacy organization. An ad hoc committee consisting of Randall Robinson, Herschelle Challenor, and Willard Johnson formulated an organization design. On July 1, 1977, TransAfrica, a nonprofit organization was incorporated in Washington, D.C. with Randall Robinson as executive director … (about /History 1/2).

total debt cancellation for poverty reduction

  • HUMAN-NEEDS BASED DEBT SUSTAINABILITY ANALYSIS:  A MAJOR CHALLENGE FOR ZAMBIA – August 2005; With the attainment of the HIPC Completion point in April this year, Zambia is now faced with a great challenge of comprehending the meaning of debt sustainability.  The country’s 5 years’ experience of implementing the HIPC initiative continues to show the dangers of basing debt sustainability on a narrow economic and financial definition.
