Connecting Communities through Development Projects

Hear from Reverend Nicholas Richards of the Abyssinian Baptist Church who leads the Abby Fund its work to incorporate new technologies and distribution networks ensuring Ethiopian coffee is competitive in the global marketplace. Ambassador Counselor Reta Nega, from the Permanent Mission of Ethiopia to the UN, will provide context for this venture sharing other recent examples of western development initiatives in Ethiopia and eastern Africa more generally. 

This lecture is part of a series entitled, Views of Africa: Conversations with a Continent and its People. The Museum for African Art and Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) have partnered to present a program series focusing on the varying ways that Africa has been represented in the U.S.  In our increasingly globalized world, many people and businesses have livelihoods connected to the trade, commerce and humanitarian efforts in Africa.  The Museum for African Art and MoCADA will present a variety of discussions exploring how educators, social entrepreneurs, and other leaders connected to Africa through their work are challenging and expanding our understanding of what is currently happening across the continent.   

Museum for African Art education programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc. Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts education programs are made possible, in part, through generous support from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Lambent Foundation, and JPMorgan Chase.
