@Ptinphusmia is running the project in Abuja. Wiki Indaba participants have started to add their words of support.
The Proclamation in Celebration of the African Diaspora and in Remembrance of African Descendants of Slavery. (Does anyone have the text in digital format to copy it here?)
@Fuzheado or anyone else at WikiCon NAM, is there an equivalent in Boston? Who is running it? Can we get pictures?
