About Virtual African Diaspora
Virtual African Diaspora, VAD, african diaspora Virtual African Diaspora VAD is an interactive communication strategy that communicates with the people. It enables Africans to share their aspirations and ideals with each other and the rest of the world. According to Williamson (1992), our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. The new African slave is a digitized barcode and the new war is fought on the information superhighway. The diasporic African of today who inhabits this new digital age has to make a conscious effort to help pull the continent out of its present subservient position into equal sociopolitical and economic level with the rest of the world. VAD does not claim to have an answer to all the problems of the continent and its citizens but promises to bring its diasporic citizens together in the new virtual village and, like our forefathers, to discuss ways and strategies of solving the communities’ problems. VAD project like Pan Africanism is a positive false memory built to counter our cultural amnesia caused by imperial parental abuse. Our fear is not that we are black or inadequate but rather that we have the capacity to overtake the world because history has confirmed that it all started in Africa.
