The F.A.C.E. List Awards salute those writers who will not let the world tell them what stories Africans “should” tell; the leaders who will not let the old guard tell them that graft and corruption are “immutable” elements of African politics; the musicians who will not let radio programmers tell them how the barring of African souls “should” sound; the entrepreneurs who won’t let executives tell them that there is a glass ceiling that Africans “can not” break. We honor those who carry the light to the dark corners of the world and show those of us following behind the paths to our own dreams.
Through the support of our generous sponsors, community leaders and organizations who share our vision of restoring Africa’s image, Face2face Africa hosts the F.A.C.E. List Awards annually in New York City to celebrate pan-African achievement. The event includes a pre-reception, dinner, performances, award presentations, more.
Face2face Africa is dedicated to burnishing and re-branding Africa’s image within the larger global community. We are rooted in a belief that an intelligent, enterprising, interconnected pan-African generation deserves a discerning, eclectic, and soulful voice. We seek nothing less than to be THE VOICE of the emergent generation of African descendants. The F.A.C.E. List Awards provides the platform to do just that.
