PRLog - Oct. 28, 2010 - Atlanta Georgia:  DCA visited Atlanta - Home of the Olympics, CNN,  CocaCola and the legendary Hon. Amb. Andrew Young – and  now host to the 2010 Leon Sullivan Foundation, yet another legendary figure.  A dynamic and vibrant city,  Atlanta perhaps houses the largest  African Diaspora in the US.  Its also home to the late Dr. Martin Luther King and the prestigious Morehouse college.

Certainly a great city for DCA to continue its campaign  to build partnership, develop its constituencies and raise awareness for the .africa initiative.

“One can imagine "cnn.africa", "cocacola.africa", "olympics.africa" and "andrewyoung.africa", that already have a home in the African continent.  Let us not forget  "leonsullivon.africa" or "drmartinlutherking.africa";  how many Africans have their heroes also as African Americas?.  It was an eye raising experience, certainly an unforgettable event, said Executive Director of DCA, Ms. Sophia Bekele, as she discussed and introduced the dotafrica name to attendees.  

The summit theme “The African Policy Forum – A vision for the 21st Century” was organized by the Leon Sullivan Foundation.   Its aim was to create a policy dialog to build bridges across generations, geographic impediments, religious differences, ethic and tribal conflicts, and political perspectives and philosophy. “These criteria are a match made in heaven with the objectives of DCA . So many of these challenges can be helped through unity and that’s exactly what  DCA promotes through its single domain for the African continent",  said Ms. Bekele.
 
The platform and infrastructure provided by the Leone Sullivan organizers provided for an Africa-focused discussion, but looked  to Africa to provide the prescriptions.  The dotAfrica domain is to bridge the economic and digital divide by promoting regional integration between national identifiers such as co.ke (Kenya), co.za (S.Africa),  as well as COMESA.africa or ECOWAS.africa.   DCA took opportunities to discuss and present the positions of dotafrica and how it can assist bridge this cultural and dialog gap,. The message  was received by attendees with excitement and optimism for the future.

Naturally as a world class city, Atlanta has so much to offer  the visitor and it did not disappoint. The Africa Policy Forum also gave an opportunity to visit this wonderful city and meet its welcoming people. Along with large gathering of African Diaspora,  African Heads of State and  policy makers this was a truly memorable event.

We thank the organizers for their warm African hospitality and holding a very successful summit.
