Why African Legacy?...

African Legacy is an apolitical, non-profit organization founded in 1996 by concerned educators. By promoting the positive and realistic aspects of African heritage to Colleges and universities worldwide, African Legacy seeks to bring balance to the many perceptions of "rural tourists", armchair analysts and vested interest groups, which so often set the media scene.

African legacy recognizes the difficulty that many Athropology, African Studies and other departments face in obtaining up-to-date, first-hand resource material. It desires to provide these centres of learning with lecturers, who have long-term fieldwork experience in Africa and who have gained academic distinction with significant new discoveries as a result of living with the people and working "off the beaten track".
