Join us in honoring the pride of Nigeria, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, as we celebrate fashion, food and keeping the conversations alive about our girls.
“When a child wants to be accepted, he’ll do anything. And if it means you’re getting a certain amount of notoriety from a fight, that’s what you’ll do.”
-Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje
Atlanta, Georgia, June 23, 2014. This July the 18th Annual Nigerian Reunion Corporation celebrates Nigeria through music, food, and culture. From July 3rd-7th, 2014, Nigerians living all over the world will gather in Atlanta to unite in past memories, present missions, and future progress.
This year we will be honoring Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje. The son of first wave Nigerians, he ran in the tough streets of London after being adopted into a white family. He rose above the challenges of his tough youth to earn his Bachelors and Masters in Law. He is a major Hollywood star and proud Nigerian. His works include Pompeii, Thor, and the upcoming Annie. You can see him this fall in the upcoming hit Odyssey.
Among the many events for your enjoyment at the festival: a fashion show, a comedy hour with international funnyman Basketmouth, and much, much more. We have something for everyone as we pay tribute to our kidnapped girls and celebrate our Nigerian heritage.
