Dallas, TX- June 25, 2010: The administration of Dr. Henry Njie, which instituted the first ever Fako America Achievement awards during the 2009 Fako America Chicago convention, continued with this laudable tradition during the 2010 Dallas convention. This year, there were five recipients, four of them Fako America members, and one from Cameroon.
Mola Mbella Ndoko of Chicago, IL received an award for “for outstanding efforts to document FA activities in film and picture.” Mola Ndoko, has been the unofficial visual archivist for Fako America since the 1996 convention in Chicago when he began capturing the event in film and picture. Thanks to his volunteer efforts, Fako America has a treasure trove of videos and pictures chronicling its journey across the years. Today, most of these precious images are available online on Youtube. Check out Mola Ndoko’s Youtube channel.
Fako America is delighted to announce that Dr. Samuel Kale Ewusi will be the keynote speaker at the Fako America convention in Dallas, Texas. His address will be titled The Fako Nation: One People, One Path, One Journey which is also the theme for this year's gathering.
