Africa Achievement Awards Honor Americans in CA

Marcus Garvey, Anita DeFrantz, African Dignitaries Will Be Honored at Africa Awards in Beverly Hills


Beverly Hills, California - The only black woman to serve on the board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Hon. Anita L. DeFrantz will join a group of national and international dignitaries to be honored at the 17th Africa Achievement Awards organized by The African Times-USA news journal and supported by various African diplomatic missions in California. Hon. DeFrantz will receive the 2009 Africa Civic Responsibility Award.


Other honorees include Dr. Josiah W. Garvey, a New York surgeon and the scion of the Marcus Josiah Garvey Family; actor and philanthropist Isaiah Washington for his humanitarian efforts in his adopted homeland of Sierra Leone, West Africa and Niger Delta peace activist and Executive Governor of Nigeria's Rivers State.


The event which be televised in various African countries will showcase the "2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa" and be attended by delegations of senior government officials, leading members of Africa's business community seeking to partner American interests in the areas of oil and gas, transportation, construction, shipping and media. This event will serve as precursor to the 18th Africa Achievement Awards scheduled next year for South Africa.  Details for those who will wish to join the group travel from the U.S. to the event will be unveiled at the May 22 event.


"We are changing the presentation of Africa from one that is dependent on aids handout, one that is destitute, to showing the business wealth creation opportunities in Africa. That is why we have invited the African business community especially from Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa to join us May 22 in Beverly Hills and forge partnerships with the Diaspora community and the American business sector.


"The good news is that Africa is ready for business and is the only part of the world where you can make a substantial ROI very easily. So, this is going to be a gathering of champions desiring to make the right contacts", stated C. Charles Anyiam, Publisher and Editor-In-Chief of The African Times-USA.


For details on how to obtain invitation to this international event, call (310) 644-0315 or email
