African leaders were hosted at the White House recently as they partook of the US Africa Summit held on Tuesday 5th August 2014 in the blue room of the White House in Washington DC, USA.

African leaders from Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Angola, Seychelles, Cameroon, Senegal and more were hosted to a dinner at the white house and after the dinner President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had a photo session with the African leaders present.

It was truly a picture-worthy moment to see almost all African leaders together in one place and also an opportunity to admire the different and vast clothing cultures from Africa as Amanda Lucidon photographed the African leaders with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The dinner was part of a three-day-long summit in Washington to strengthen ties between the United States and African nations.
