welcome home

The Afrimerican Culture Initiative's mission is to 'build cultural bridges between and within the African diaspora using Education, Technology and Travel'

to give our African diasporian communities a clear pathway to connect culturally with the Motherland... 

Through our research we have identified the process many in the African diaspora go through when they are dealing with the effects of cultural disconnection from Africa  

and through our 'Connect IV' program and the support of the many we are developing the comprehensive  solution. We have a ‘Lives in Me’ competition which is designed to showcase the benefits of the ‘CONNECT IV’ program.

This solution is an experienced based, multi-sensory program based on a curriculum designed by experienced educators, social activists and advocates for our mission.

We are here for EVERYBODY and have educational opportunities for all who wish to improve relations amongst the African diaspora here in the USA and beyond.


Who is the ‘african diaspora’?

The Afrimerican Culture Initiative Inc. is an ‘inclusive’ group that works for the cultural benefit of the ‘African Diaspora"‘. Our definition of the African diaspora includes all

who are members of or work towards benefit of the descendants of Africans. Our definition is broad but that is because we all are in this together!

DEFINITIONS

  • Afrimericans are defined as the descendants of African Immigrants, however, the most important characteristic of ‘Afrimericans’ is the unique blend of African and American culture. This blend is found in various proportions especially in the Afro-Caribbean , Afro Latin and southern American states. So once you have significant African cultural values in your African Diaspora culture you are an ‘Afrimerican’.

  • African Americans are descendants of African slaves who for the most part have been stripped of their original culture.

  • Afro-Latin are descendants of African slaves and the Portuguese, Spanish or indigenous South American cultures. They usually have a wonderful blend of African and Latin culture.

  • Afro-Caribbean are descendants of African slaves who inhabit the islands of the Caribbean. They usually have distinct African based cultures.

  • African Immigrants are descendants of African immigrants who began to come to American in the sixties during the culmination of the civil rights work of Martin Luther King.

  • Friends of Africa are the allies we have that are not of African descent but through their dedication to the betterment of the descendants of Africa worldwide have become brothers and sisters in the struggle for equal rights and justice for all.

CONNECT IV PROGRAM

The CONNECT IV program is designed to take our African diaspora brothers and sisters through the connection process in a comprehensive, impactful and fun way. Our 'CONNECT IV' program is designed to be an experience not just any course. Our curriculum is multi-sensory and dynamic while staying true to authentic African oral tradition.  Be prepared to educate your taste buds and fashion acumen as well as your academic knowledge of African culture. Learn from Africans in the diaspora while being immersed in our African diaspora communities right here in New England. Learn the pros and cons of DNA testing for ethnicity, to prepare you for your discovery of a life time. Get guidance on your research into your new found culture while preparing for your first introductory trip to West Africa and beyond... 

Our 'CONNECT IV' program is broken down into 4 categories
