Henley has had a frienship link with Borama in Somalia/Somaliland since 1983. During the 34 years the link has lasted, Borama has changed a great deal and became the center of education for all Somalis. The frienship has been revived by the alliance between Henley-Borama Friendship Association and Samasons

This day-long, multidisciplinary colloquium will showcase how Somalis have been a growing and flourishing presence in Canada and other nations in the Global North. Utilizing a critical lens through multiple disciplines, such as academic, artistic, or grassroots activism regarding reflections on the Somali-diasporic presence, the colloquium will focus on the resilience and the diversity in the experiences of Somali migrants, the active exclusion and difficulties integrating into Canadian society and the lack of support experienced by both migrants and subsequent generations in Canada and beyond. The colloqium will hold particular attention to the given politics and poetics of Somali diasporic communities, their location at the intersection of multiple identities/oppressions (Blackness and antiblackness, colonialism and coloniality, Islam and Islamophobia, refugee/new immigrant identities and xenophobia, and more), and the relationship of Somalis to other communities of colour, such as Indigenous nations and other black diasporic communities.
