KINGSTON, Jamaica, March 14, 2024 – In a historic move that reverberates across continents, Dr. Hilary Brown, also revered as HRH Queen Asianut Acom II, ascends to a pivotal role in the global arena as the President of the Global African Diaspora Kingdom (GADK).

• HRH QUEEN ASIANUT ACOM II/ DR HILLARY BROWN - PRESIDENT
Dr. Hilary Brown, enstooled HRH Queen Asianut Acom II in August 2022 in Guyana, has been appointed President of the Global African Diaspora Kingdom (GADK) by the Royal Council of African Indigenous Leaders.

Dr. Brown’s enstoolment in Guyana in August 2022 was a precursor to this monumental responsibility, showcasing her profound connection to African heritage and culture.

Under the auspices of the GADK, a beacon of hope and unity for Africans and their descendants worldwide, Dr. Brown will steer the Supreme Council. 

The GADK emerges as a formidable non-profit organization, dedicating its essence to the cultural, spiritual, and economic resurgence of Africa and its scattered seeds. 

At its core, the GADK aims to mend the centuries-old rift caused by the diaspora’s forced separation from their motherland, advocating for the return of stolen cultural riches that once defined the continent’s majesty.

A Legacy of Leadership: Dr. Brown’s Journey and Vision

Bringing over two decades of regional development experience, Dr. Brown’s expertise is a treasure trove for the GADK. 

Her current role as Programme Manager for Culture and Community Development at the CARICOM Secretariat in Guyana has been a testament to her unwavering commitment to cultural enrichment, youth empowerment, and gender equality.

Dr. Brown’s leadership in organizing visits by African royalty to the Caribbean, and facilitating diaspora reconnections with their African roots, underscores her visionary approach to healing and unity.

Bridging Continents: Queen Acom II’s Reconnection Initiatives

Queen Acom II has been a linchpin in bridging the historical divide between Africa and its diaspora.

Her strategic orchestration of African royalty’s visits to the Caribbean has ignited a renewed sense of belonging and identity among the descendants of the African diaspora. 

These visits, in collaboration with the University of the West Indies and under the banner of the CARICOM Reparations Commission, have facilitated meaningful encounters with the Maroon community in Accompong, Jamaica. 

Moreover, Queen Acom II’s leadership in reconnection visits to Uganda and Kenya in 2023 has fortified ties with African kingdoms, emboldening the spirit of unity and mutual recognition among diaspora royals. 

These efforts are not merely ceremonial; they are essential threads in the fabric of psychological healing and reparatory justice that underpin the Ten Point Plan articulated by the CARICOM Reparations Commission.

A Council United for Change: The Supreme Council’s New Faces

The appointment of Dr. Brown is accompanied by the induction of esteemed members into the Supreme Council, reflecting a diverse and dynamic leadership team. 

This includes Chief Eric Siphosezulu (First Vice President), HRH Queen Gamachana Ikatekit (Second Vice President), Queen Uhuru Wingi (General Secretary), HRH Princess Africa (Treasurer), and Queen Mother Ajambo Nabura (Chief Commissioner). 

Together, these leaders form a robust council, equipped to drive the GADK’s ambitious agenda forward. Their collective expertise and dedication to the cause of African unity and progress are pivotal in the organization’s mission to foster a global African renaissance.

Embracing a New Era of Leadership and Unity

The Global African Diaspora Kingdom stands on the brink of a new era, buoyed by the visionary leadership of Dr. Hilary Brown and the newly appointed Supreme Council. 

As we congratulate these distinguished leaders on their new roles, we anticipate the transformative impact of their tenure. 

The GADK’s dedication to reconnecting Africa with its diaspora, reclaiming cultural heritage, and championing economic and spiritual revival heralds a promising future. 

It’s a journey of rediscovery, healing, and empowerment that transcends borders, uniting a global community with shared roots and a common destiny.
