Duke University Youthful Futures Conference

I was a panelist at this conference held at Duke April 29-30, 2011

Seven out of ten Africans south of the Sahara are under thirty, and four out of ten under the age of fifteen. What comparisons might be drawn with the Caribbean, a region that is transitioning from youthful to aging if it is not yet graying (along with the rest of the world)? The Center for African and African-American Research at Duke University invites you to join us to discuss the significance of population age structure in sub-Saharan Africa – the only part of the world which will continue to grow younger over the next two decades – and in the Caribbean, and to explore the broad social, cultural and political implications of youth demographics.
