African Perspectives for March 6, 2022

The first episode in March commences our month-long commemoration of Women’s History month (WHM), the celebration and focus on the history, contributions of women to the society at large. As part of opening the month, the episode commemorates the International Women’s Day which comes up on Tuesday, March 8. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The episode emphasizes the theme for the year, #BreakTheBias and the different elements of the day’s commemoration as outlined on the commemoration website, www.Internationalwomensday.com. The episode further narrows the commemoration to focus on the plight of women on the African continent. It notes the diversity of experiences but concludes with the uniformity of the greater need to #BreakTheBias when it comes to women on the continent. The show was also a tribute to the 104th anniversary of the first 12 women enrolling at UGA in 1918. As always, the episode featured selected enjoyable music from Africa and/or by African women including selected tunes from the collections, Queens of African Music, Women of Africa and the album, I’m An African by Janelia.
