The need for African Culture Ambassadors in America

Africans and African Americans have been disconnected from the wisdom of their cultural heritage caused by the trauma of colonialism and slavery. As a result of deliberate belittling, distraction and disruption of African culture, both Africans on the continent and in the diaspora experience a disconnect, a displacement and a way of life at odds with who they are.  As such they’re trapped in a perpetual struggle to defend one’s Africanness or dilution of one’s Africanness to conform. For these reasons there remains a pressing need to heal and reconnect with one’s true self. The African Culture Ambassador seeks to increase the appreciation, significance and presence of African Culture and Heritage among Africans and non-Africans.
