On September 24th, 2019, the Africa-America Institute will host its 35th Annual Awards Gala, the largest showcase celebrating the success of African countries and the diaspora.

Held annually during the week of the United Nations General Assembly, AAI’s Annual Awards Gala is one of the most anticipated Africa-focused events in New York City. The Awards Gala brings together distinguished guests including African Heads of State and diplomats, international and senior U.S. government officials, business and civil society leaders, educators, journalists, philanthropists and other prominent figures who are working towards advancing economic and development progress in Africa.

Since its first Annual Awards Dinner in 1984, AAI has honored individuals who are working to fulfill AAI’s mission of increasing Africa’s human capacity for development and promoting engagement between the African continent and America.

Please stay tuned for Honoree Announcements and Sponsorship Opportunities
