Celebrate Africa.

Today is Africa Day! May 25th commemorates the founding of the former Organization of African Unity which was reorganized in 1999 as the African Union. This years theme: “An Efficient and Effective African Union for a New Africa.” Africa is the ancestral home of all of us (for some more recently than for others), so let's all celebrate the Continent!

* Learn more about the African Union. Their website has information on all African countries, regional organizations, and more.

* Get news from Africa from

* Make plans to visit Africa. I can't wait to get back to Ghana!

* Check out these blogs on Africa by folks in and from the Continent. Many are in African languages.

If you don't do so regularly (or even if you do) take time today to acknowledge and celebrate the wealth, culture, and spirit of Africa and Africans everywhere!
