Africa Day: African Parents in A Meme

May 25 marked the 54th annual Africa Day. It was first held in 1963 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia when 32 countries formed the Organisation of Africa Unity (OAU).


The OAU’s original mission was to bring freedom to African countries that were still under colonial rule in the 60s, defend their sovereignty, uphold human rights and restore the dignity of the African people.

Nowadays many Africans are at pains to figure out what this cross-continental holiday means. Most people celebrate it by sharing different aspects of their culture, food, and diversity.

We found our unifying factor in a series of memes tagged #AfricanParentsinAMeme. We might be from different countries but it seems our parents read from the same script.


These were some of our favorites.
