Invitation to a Seminar on Revival of Oromummaa
August 15, 2012
The Oromo Community Organization of Washington DC Area is organizing a seminar on the “Revival of Oromummaa” to be convened on September 1, 2012 from 8:30am-6:30pm at Howard University. The exact address where the seminar will take place is indicated below.
The purpose of this seminar is to examine the past and present weaknesses and strengths of Oromo Nationalism, and to forge a strategy to consolidate national self awareness; to build confidence and pride in one’s own culture and identity; and to apply the outcome of the conference to establish a strong unity among all Oromos of the current and future generations.
The speakers at the forum are professors Asafa Jaleta, Mohammed Hassen, Obbo Ibsa Gutema, and Obbo Habtamu Dhugo. These professionals are prominent Oromo intellectuals whose knowledge and experience of the subject will make the event fruitful and productive.
We invite fellow Oromos to attend this forum which is designed to help us to regain our sense of belongingness as well as to acquire additional knowledge and deepen our understanding of what Oromummaa means to each one of us. Our desire is to see similar events to be replicated in other Oromo communities. We hope all Oromos will come to this seminar and witness the historic event.
