Mark Your Calendar For Igbo Retreat In Igbo Village In U.S.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – Press Release: Council of Igbo States in Americas (CISA) calls on all Igbos wherever they may be and all sons and daughters of Africa (the entire world) to mark their calenders and book their flights on time so as not to miss the maiden Igbo retreat. Life started in Africa and this means we are all sons and daughters of Africa irrespective of where we may find ourselves in the world. Some will say "sons and daughters of Adam and Eve", that is another way of putting the origin of mankind to Africa. The bottom-line is that the Igbo Farm Village in Virginia, U.S., the venue of the Igbo Retreat touches all that dwell on earth through history of mankind and the forced coming of mother Africans to the new world (United States). The Igbo Farm Village is landmark recognition of the contributions of Igbo victims of the trans-atlantic slave trade to the development of Virginia and the greater American frontier culture.
