Join our special guests Wole Soyinka, Noble Laureate for Literature as well as Leoluca Orlando, the mayor of Palermo, for this event.

Sicily lies at the center of the Mediterranean, where Europe meets Africa. Starting in June, Palermo, the capital city of Sicily, will celebrate the richness of the Black Mediterranean, hosting a series of artistic and cultural events that reflect the diversity and dynamism of the African diaspora. Leoluca Orlando and Wole Soyinka will discuss how they are making this happen.
