On November 11, 2022, the Department of Africology & African American Studies hosted the Philadelphia Angolan Community's celebration of Angola's 47th independence anniversary. Very informative information was shared with the audience regarding the Angolan struggle to finally achieve independence from Portugal in 1975. One of DAAAS's former students, Dr. Tarik Richardson, additionally shared valuable information about Angola's ancient history. Then, a typical Angolan meal was shared; it was delicious!
