Each day, the APSP Honor Guard raised the African flag before the Congress convened.
In addition to political analysis and reports on the work from many different projects of the African People's Socialist Party, the Congress featured moving performances by the Freedom Mass Choir and Band, led by Director Elikya Ngoma (at the mic).
