these individuals stop at nothing to be proper ambassadors and bear the flags of our continent.
They are our educators, our freedom fighters, our leaders, our philanthropist, our artist
and entertainers who make a difference and propagate that feeling of African-ness.
We are proud to announce that for 2011 our honorees are as listed below:
Angelique Kidjo â€“ Entertainment
Angelique Kidjo has been deemed “Africa’s premier diva” by Time Magazine. Like Miriam
Makeba was before her, Kidjo is the continent’s most internationally celebrated female musical
exponent. The GRAMMY Award-winning star embodies the spirit of Africa. Through her music,
life, and exuberant commitment to advocacy she exemplifies unity, peace, and diversity.
Bisila Bokoko â€“ Trailblazer
Bisila Bokoko is the Executive Director of the Spain-U.S Chamber of Commerce and also considered
one of the ten most influential Spanish women in the American business world. Always
reminded by the obstacles she faced as one of only a handful of African families living in Spain,
Mrs. Bokoko founded the Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project, a foundation focused on providing
books and resources to children and families in Africa.
