Why celebrate African Australians?

African Australians contribute so much to this great country. We have iconic African Australians in sports, medicine, law and entertainment. Several others are captain of industries, entrepreneurs and celebrities. In addition, many serve the government and the community in various capacities.

Therefore, the aim of Celebration of African Australians Inc ("Celebrate") is to celebrate, appreciate and showcase the contributions of African Australians to our collective growth and prosperity. 

This is a flow-on from the United Nation’s proclamation of 2011 as the International Year for People of African Descent.
