The Afrimerican Culture Initiative's mission is to 'build cultural bridges between Africa and the African diaspora using Education, Technology and Travel'
to give our 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.
This solution is an experienced based, multi-sensory program based on a curriculum designed by experienced educators, social activists and advocates for our mission.
CONNECT IV PROGRAM
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
With the support of the African immigrant community, we thrive to be the welcoming hands of Africa to the African diaspora, as we work to connect our brothers and sisters whose original culture requires rejuvenation.
Our inclusive organization recognizes the African diaspora in the Americas aka Afrimericans as African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Latino and those we affectionately call the 'Friends of Africa'.
These 'Friends of Africa' while not having Africa in their blood , do possess abundant Africa in their hearts.
