The Pan-African Connection Way

Culturally Rich and Historically Relevant

Our Vision: Connecting African people scattered globally with our great history, culture and collective strength, uniting Africa and African Peoples, and the upliftment of humanity worldwide.

Our Mission: To remind the world that Black history did not start in slavery, but in Africa. 


Our Methodology and Actions:

  • We provide and create educational programs and content that inspire and provides a transformation in the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the African diaspora community. 

  • We support the mediums of poetry, language, all genres of art, hip-hop, visual arts, STEM development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

  • We offer community meeting space for organizations, grassroots and family gathering for discussions and workshops that showcase the positive work being done, aimed at healing the traumatic issues impacting our community.  

  • We also provide programs on the role of women in our history, past and present.  

  • We have a huge focus on being advocates for the comprehensive health and wellness of folks in our community; through films, gardening and urban farming, cooking demos, offering free fruit and vegetables, enhancing children’s health and so much more.

  • Providing activities and resources that dispel the long term propaganda that we have no history and that we have lost our culture.  Restoring the positive ideas and images of our historical greatness to instill confidence and guide our youth and families on a path of values and principles, that will reflect the dignity and their ancestors. 

  • Moreover, our mission is to use our collective institution to provide a deep love of self and a unbreakable love and connection with our Mother Africa.
