The historic general assembly of African actresses took place from 12-16 November 2019 at the FESTILAG Festival international du film des lacs et des lagunes (International Lakes and Lagoons Film Festival) in Côte d'Ivoire. This initiative revives the now defunct L’Association des Actrices Africaines/The Association of African Actresses created in 1989 of which pioneer actress Zalika Souley was elected as the president, in recognition of the role she played in asserting the value of women in the world of African cinema.

Veteran actress, activist and feminist Naky Sy Savane, who helms the festival brought together actresses throughout the continent.

During the festival event tributes were made to the pioneering actresses of African cinema: Hélène Catzaras (Tunisia), Fatoumata Coulibaly (Mali), Anne Kacou Diop (Cote d'Ivoire), Thérèse Mbissine Diop (Senegal), Touria Jabrane (Morocco), Aï Keïta (Burkina Faso), Zalika Souley (Niger), Félicité Wouassi (Cameroon).
