YOUR COMMENTS, IDEAS AND THOUGHTS matter on this portal.

We believe that YOUR thoughts have tremendous power. And ideas are great change agents. This portal therefore offers you the opportunity to chime in on the topical issue of the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement founded in 2013 in response to the Trevor Martins’ death in Florida, in the United States, and has since snowballed into a global phenomenon with offshoots in the United Kingdom and Canada in response to incessant death of people of African descent in the hands of white individuals. The recent verdict in the infamous George Floyd’s saga has also become a flashpoint for racial tension worldwide. The African Times-USA now formally invites you leave YOUR comments and share YOUR thoughts on these type of issues, and of course on the stories that we carry here.
 
Materials on this portal are well researched and documented by some of the finest crop of writers and journalists whose craft is familiar with the trends, happenings and of course the sensibilities in the Pan African community around the world
