Afrikan Wisdom Summit Mission Statement

Afrikan Wisdom Summit is focusing on the rich wisdom that has been passed down from generation to generation. The birth of this summit came from the anthology, Afrikan Wisdom, edited by Dr. Valerie Mason-John M.A (hon.doc) and published in 2021 by North Atlantic Books.

Valerie wanted to ensure that the theme of Afrikan Wisdom is not overshadowed by the intergenerational trauma that is so often focused on. She approached Wisdom for Life founder Eric Forbis to help bring Afrikan Wisdom to a wider audience.

Together they co-founded the Afrikan Wisdom Summit as equal business partners. The intention is that this will become an annual event bringing together thought leaders and experts to explore a wide variety of Afrikan Wisdom.
