In her continued effort to ensuring global understanding and appreciation of Black African arts, culture, history and civilization, Centre for Black African Arts and Civilization, CBAAC last week at the Banquet Hall of Excellence Hotels, Ogba, Ikeja held a very high profile lecture on the volatile subject of religion.

It came on the heel of another engaging lecture titled; Politicization of Ethnicity, Inequities and Electoral Violence in Kenya delivered by Head of Political Affairs, United Nations Missions in Liberia, Monrovia as part of CBAAC'S efforts to suggesting solutions to the lingering electoral violence that ensued in the aftermath of the alleged massively rigged election in the East African country of Kenya.

Professor Tunde Babawale, Director/CEO (BAAC) and Professor Jacob Kehinde Olupona, Guest Speaker.

Last week's lecture was appropriately designed to engage Nigeria, the host mother of CBAAC, whose own religio-pluralistic character has caused more harm than good.
