About MinneAfrica

 

Welcome to Minneafrica!

This site has been a long time coming and hopefully will be the needed response to the longing by many Africans in Minnesota for a one-stop-site where they can find useful information that is specifically designed for their needs and tastes.

On this website you will find all things African in Minnesota; from concerts and symposiums on our calendar, to news and opinions. In the very near future we will have an expansive directory and a job link section.

Like all other online communities this one grows stronger with your participation. We will greatly appreciate your feedback and encourage you to share your opinions by commenting on articles or blogging for us. Stay in the know by sending us an email to receive weekly updates, joining our page on facebook or following us on twitter.

We hope that through MinneAfrica you will be able to connect, reconnect and stay connected with Africans and friends of Africans in Minnesota.

  7. To the MinneAfrica Team,

    Acting in a straightforward manner, I have learned, is a humane policy. It can honestly be said that I have recently subscribed for your weekly updates.

    I felt like you and members of your reading community would appreciate the delights The Galley has to offer. So I chose to post this message on your blog. I hope you do not find this disrespectful. In the event that you do, please accept my apologies and disregard the following message.

    This is an invitation to The Galley of Chef M Mots (www.15tracks.net/-the-galley.html). Kindly indulge in its debut presentation entitled The Broccoli + Samboussa Selections. You can leave honest feedback/criticisms at The Galley’s Guestbook located at http://www.15tracks.net/-the-galley-guestbook.html. The entire presentation will be made available as a free download on December 16, 2008. Unless you subscribe to the e-mailing list of The Galley, you can be rest assured that you will not receive comments such as this again.

    Thank you for your time and all the best with your endeavors.

    The Galley of Chef M Mots.

  8. fyi:

    Many of us (starting with me) had no idea Nelima or #blck existed until Twitter. Thats one reason, we should consider reaching outside of our circle (comfort zone) , catch – and reel some of us in.

    We make progress, but the work is never finished. My goal is to reach those kids, and people who don’t have computers at home, and don’t overstand the power of the internet.

    Good to ‘virtually’ meet you – via twitter.
    🙂

  9. OSK I am completely with you on reaching outside our circle to meet others. That’s the beauty of the internet and yes it is for that reason that everyone should keep up to date with today’s technology (have access to internet at the very least) or else be left behind. Great to ‘virtually meet you too’ may this be the beginning of a great network 🙂

  10. Pro-Peace Rally on Monday January 5th

    University of Minnesota students are hosting a rally on Monday January 5th(1pm-5pm) as a reactionary measure to the violence in Gaza in front the state capitol in St.Paul. They will have a speaker from CAIR-MN, Council on American Islamic Relations-MN, and one from the twin cities chapter of International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. Keith Ellison may be speaking as well. There will protests from 1pm-3pm, speakers and a press conference from 3pm-4pm, and a candle light vigil at 4:15pm for the victims and deaths of the past week.

    Sincerely,
    Basmah Ali
