Agenda Background & Introduction to the African Diaspora Directorate
On behalf of the African Diaspora Directorate (“Directorate”), I, Dr. Kofi Agyapong have the honor to present you some background first, Brotherhood and Sisterhood International Inc., a 30 year old (1989) American Non Profit Organization, EIN 52-1569388 with a 501c3 Ruling in 1989, in order to form a more perfect union between the people of the African Union and the United States of America, establish justice and the rule of law equally applied to all people, ensure global tranquility, provide for the common defense of the people of the African Diaspora, promote the general welfare for the people of the African Diaspora, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, did ordain as a American Civil Society Organization ran by citizens of the African Union and those of the African Diaspora living in the United States of America did this past Juneteenth (June 19th 2019) did join with other organizations in the creation of the African Diaspora Directorate as our global civil society organization for people of the African Diaspora.
The African Diaspora Directorate is a new Civil Society Organization designed to serve as a catalyst to facilitate the involvement of African Diasporan peoples and organizations around the world in the affairs of the Africa Union and to develop solutions for them in the countries in which they live.
In a world characterized by increasing mobility and interconnections, the People of the African diasporas have assumed a new importance in the African Union, the United Nations and in the United States of America, as of January 8th 2018, an official history from 1619. The African Diaspora may be divided into two categories:
(i) people of African heritage who “involuntarily” were migrated to North America, Europe, the Caribbean, Brazil, Latin America, Arab Lands, Oceania, etc.; and,
(ii) persons who recently, from 1919, left the African continent “voluntarily”.
We accept and operate in the African Continent under the recognition of the African Diaspora globally and legally by the 55 African member states of African continental organization the African Union (AU) which is based on the AU Executive Council meeting in its 7th Ordinary Session in Sirte in June/July 2005, by Decision EX.CL/Dec.221(VII), which adopted the following definition of the Diaspora: “The African Diaspora consists of peoples of African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union“.
This 2020 action is based on The 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act (1619-2019). A law signed into law January 8, 2018, by President Trump, which established a commission to coordinate the 400th anniversary year of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colonies. This law was based on for the first time the US federal government recognizing by law that on August 25th, 1619, 20 Africans were brought to Point Comfort in the English colony of Virginia, which later became one of the founding states of the USA. We do not know if they were enslaved or indentured. We do know that now after 400 years we are organizing to take control of our future from a headquarters in Washington DC..
The African Diaspora Directorate Operations
The African Diaspora Directorate (Directorate) is an economic, social, humanitarian, charitable, educational, membership, and advocacy global civil-society organization of a American Non Profit 501C3 (1989) Brotherhood and Sisterhood (BSI) Inc. founded to work for the benefit of the People the African Diaspora and their host countries.
As of November 28th 2019 the African Diaspora Directorate has seven divisions:
(1) a General Assembly with three operational chambers: a People’s Congress, a Civil Society Organizational Congress and an Assembly of State Leaders;
(2) a Secretariat is to be established in the USA by August 25th, 2019 under management by Friends of the African Union through 2024;
(3) The African Diaspora Royal Society which is governed by the The African Diaspora Directorate Royal Council. The Society is a membership of those of African Tribal Royalty in the global African Diaspora, the tribe in Ghana created for those in the global African Diaspora without a tribe, African Tribal Royalty that welcome members of the African Diaspora in them and or tribes recognized by them for the members of the African Diaspora;
(4) a Civil Society Division will work with the African Union’s (AU) Citizens and Diaspora Directorate (AU/CIDO) to implement the AU’s engagement process with non-state actors through the involvement of the African Diaspora’s Civil Society through AU/CIDO;
(5) a Diaspora Division will organize at national in the African Diaspora, regional and or state geographic and Tribal level the people of African Descent in the global African Diaspora which is composed of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in line with AU’s Economic, Social and Cultural Council, the United Nations, the European Union, Organization of American States along with other international and or multinational organizations;
(6) a Operations Division who will create and operate the partnerships and businesses called for by the organs of the African Diaspora Directorate Secretariat; and,
(7) The Business Operations Division shall create business corporations organized for profit with a corporate purpose of creating general public benefit for the People of the African Diaspora (PAD). These benefit corporations offer PAD entrepreneurs and investors the option to build, and invest in, businesses that operate in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
African Diaspora Directorate and a #BlackFolksPlanforAfrica
Our ideology is that of “a Global Plan of Action made Local” which rejects a fundamental adherence to left- or right-wing politics or policies, instead requiring the adoption of such policies as correspond to the problems faced by the nation at any given moment through the lens of the history and needs of the 47m People of African Descent in the global African Diaspora living in the USA. Thus both right- and left-wing policies may be considered equally carefully in formulation of the policy of the African Diaspora Directorate in the creation of its Community Benefit Agreement for people of African Descent in the #BlackFolksPlanforAfrica.
The #BlackFolksPlanforAfrica is to be a solution based on our work presented by one of our co-founders Friends of the African Union (FAU) to the Addis Agenda which provided a new global framework for financing sustainable development, which supports implementation of the 2030 Agenda, including the SDGs.
The Addis Agenda aligns all domestic and international resource flows, policies and international agreements with economic, social and environmental priorities. It incorporates all the SDG means of implementation targets into a comprehensive financing framework, and serves as a guide for further actions by governments, international organizations, the business sector, civil society, and philanthropists.
The Financing for Development process is centered around supporting the follow-up to the agreements and commitments reached during the three major international conferences on Financing for Development: in Monterrey, Mexico in 2002; in Doha, Qatar in 2008; and in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2015. The process also follows up on the financing for development-related aspects of the outcomes of major United Nations conferences and summits in the economic and social fields, including the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Reparations for American African Slavery
The Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent in 2017 based on their 2016 Investigation of the United States. They provided in their report solutions to the practice of institutionalized racism in government and business on the descendant Americans of African heritage from 1868 through today and as important solutions through Community Benefit Agreements to the effects subsequently de jure & de facto of that racial & economic discrimination.
Friends of the African Union submitted to the WGEPAD and the UN Human Rights Council our $5T Solution to America Reparations
FAU did so still believing that Obama Administration executive action on a $5T USD Quantitative Easing debt purchasing program called the #BlackFolksPlan that used The Daniels IDIQ (under license) would be a solution for the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of 76 years African slavery in the USA and its effects subsequently de jure and de facto of racial and economic discrimination on the descendant Americans of African heritage. In 2016, after spending two years in negotiating the terms of implementation of solutions to the 2015 Universal Periodic Review (#UNUPR) of the USA, the US Government never acted on their request.
Background: Accounting for inflation, if we use the $20,000 that the Japanese received for 3 years in Concentration camps (1942 to 1945), then we would be asking for funding at $901,838.17 or about Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars per person (1789 to 1865). If applied to the 4.4M Africans in 1865, as our co-founder Friends of the African Union did not use the end of the civil war August 1866, rather the year of the end of major combat operations. 1865, with the surrender of the Army of Northern VA, then the amount is $3,968,087,948,098.35 or about $4T, but if it is to be paid on the descendants of those Africans, who numbered over 36M in 2016 (US Census), then the amount is $32,466,174,120,804.70 ($32.5T).
Note: We had asked for $5T with over a Trillion going back to the US Government for purchasing the US Postal Service $455B (to support a million black businesses that would have been financed on this model with a new distribution system to challenge established market makers), paying for over 10M acres of land and other agreements that supported the reeducation of our people including buying their college debt.
The African Diaspora Directorate now takes up implementation of this action as a updated #BlackFolksPlan
Now in 2020 that national 2016 #BlackFolksPlan then becomes shaped by members of the African Diaspora Directorate to a plan #BlackFolksPlanfor(name of Country here) that concerns itself with how to allocate the power inherent in our Community Benefit Agreements to do trade with that country and to what ends they should be used to address the needs of the People of African Descent in the global African Diaspora living in the USA and their descendants. This all happens under a agreement with AU/CIDO and or the AU organ of the direction of the Chairman.
