Happy Africa Day!

Africans across the world are today celebrating Africa Day in grand style, dressed in beautiful traditional outfits and putting on a colourful display of culture, food and diversity.

Africa Day (formerly African Freedom Day andAfrican Liberation Day) is the annual commemoration of the foundation of theOrganisation of African Unity (OAU) (now known as the African Union) on May 25, 1963. It is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as around the world.

The OAU’s original mission was to bring freedom to African countries that were still under colonial rule in the 60s, defend their sovereignty, uphold human rights and restore the dignity of the African people

Nowadays, Africa Day is a national holiday in a handful of countries and is widely celebrated by Africans.
