No one can deny that our relationship with Africa was from the very moment the forced migration of Africans to America began. Our Liberator Simon Bolivar expressed back in 1817 “we are more an extension of Africa than of Europe.” The Bolivarian process inspired by President Hugo Chavez since 1999 inserted Africa in the daily life of the Venezuelan people.

The month of May is for Venezuelans a referential date on which we claim the contribution of Africa to our independence and our cultural diversity. For Venezuelans, Africa is a very important continent of our historical legacy. From May 1795 to May 2015. 220 years of libertarian insurgency of José Leonardo Chirino. A libertarian insurrection of blacks who sought to eliminate slavery. An insurrection which set a historic precedent for the independence of Venezuela.

The African Revolution Leaders poster exhibition aims to express the support and respect of the Venezuelan people for the great African leaders who spearheaded the liberation of Africa from imperialism.’ – H.E. The Ambassador, The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
