AAI Annual Awards Gala

Thank you for joining us on September 22, 2020 for the 36th AAI Annual Awards Gala. We hope that you enjoyed our first virtual gala and found inspiration in this year’s distinguished honorees.

The 2020 honorees are truly an exceptional and inspirational group of leaders who are demonstrating what Africa, Africans and African descendants are contributing to the world. We have never been more inspired to continue our work of educating people and connecting worlds.

AAI’s Annual Awards Gala is our most important fundraiser, allowing us to continue our vital mission of promoting enlightened engagement between Africa and America through education, training and dialogue — something which is even more relevant and important in today’s environment. 

As we continue to practice physical distancing, AAI is excited to take our annual awards gala digital, streaming worldwide to a truly global audience, showcasing the many successes of Africa, Africans and Afro-descendants across the world. As we shine a light on the pioneering work of our Alumni, African nations and individuals in the arts and corporate world, we celebrate together as we plan for a future when we can once again connect in person.

Until then, please join us to celebrate our important mission and this year’s distinguished honorees.
