Administered through AFCA, the Garvey-Nkrumah Fellowship Program is a summer leadership and professional development initiative designed to train aspiring lawyers of African descent in areas of law and the legal profession where such lawyers are grossly underrepresented: international law, public policy, and conflict resolution.  The objective of this initiative includes facilitating the following program principles when addressing global issues (e.g., social justice, economic development) that disproportionately impact the African diaspora:

  • Solidarity
  • Capacity Building
  • Collaboration
  • Solutions
  •  Application of Solutions

Established in honor of international civil rights leaders, political theorists, and dignitaries Marcus Garvey and Kwame Nkrumah, this fellowship provides a comprehensive “experiential learning laboratory” for program participants.  Specifically, fellows receive professional development experience through legal internships and capstone projects designed to advance solutions that address targeted legal, social, economic, and/or public policy issues within the following regions: Africa, the Caribbean, and the U.S
