Ralph Opara (1933-2002), was one of the seven founding members of the Pyrates Confraternity. In his chosen career as a broadcaster he rose to become one of the pioneers and well known radio broadcasters in Nigeria.
The National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity) has continued to promote the legacy of this national icon by organising lectures in his honour.

The maiden lecture took place in Owerri, Nigeria in 2004. The 2019 edition is the 10th in the series and is peculiar as being the first to be held outside Nigeria.
