The Wisdom Wednesday lecture series aims to draw on the deep well of African history, culture & wisdom in order to engage in Sankofa (the act of remembering what was lost) for the benefit of current and future generations.

We host various presenters on topics related to African history, culture and personal development, and wholistic health. We also host lectures and book signings by various prominent authors. The purpose of Wisdom Wednesdays is to create an environment where participants gain knowledge and insights that will allow them to improve their lives and commit themselves to transforming their communities for the better.

Wisdom Wednesday lectures occur every 3rd Wednesday of the month, usually at the Thurgood Marshall Building located at 1816 12th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. At this time, all Wisdom Wednesday lectures will be held online. See below for registration.

The program is free and open to the public and runs from 7pm to 9pm.
