Life Transitions: Announcements for Leaders and Families of Leaders of the African Community
Princes of Africa networking with Austin Africa and other organizations expects to be a part of the ‘village square’ to Africans living in the US and their friends and admirers.
It works to inform and make connections between community leaders assisting Africans who are part of the African Diaspora as well as to individuals having deep respect and affection for Africa and its sons and daughters and who would benefit by associating directly to African individuals, communities, and organizations.
It believes in giving due recognition to those African leaders whose lives have been or were an example to others, by virtue of honest work and decent lives.
Many of these individuals have provided an example not only for their brothers and sisters with whom they immigrated to the US, thereby helping others make it in the new land. Princes of Africa is confident that this ‘village square” can contribute to facilitating a deeper connection among Africans, African Americans, and their ancestral home.
Obituaries and Short Biographies on African leaders, written by known American poet and writer, can be developed for those seeking to record and convey the meaning and lives of African leaders in an established journal and magazine of Africans and African Culture in the US.
Written in Traditional African context and format; reflecting not only their success and contributions in American life but which are also suitable announcements for periodicals in their native countries and wake keeping celebrations held by families and friends.
Princes of Africa also announces and advertises via Austin Africa personal life transitions of Africans; births, graduations, engagements, marriages, and other joyous events so that friends, colleagues, and members of traditional societies know of these special occasions. The style and form of these announcements follow either the Times of London format and/or traditional African publicity.
Besides announcements in Austin Africa arrangements can also be made for complimentary announcements in the London The Times or The Sunday Times.
The first announcements by POA are about our family. Ify lost her father some time ago, and I am reproducing the speech given about him at the Coal City Club wake keeping about his special life. He was a palm wine tapper, a Nigerian Railways employee, African Yam farmer, a keeper of Igbo tradition, and one of the happiest persons I have ever met. The second is about my mother Francis Navarro Vaughn who was a professional woman, a pioneer in Academic Libraries, and, born in Brooklyn, a true Italian woman in every respect.
