Mission Statement

Connected to Culture, Inc.’s mission is to build community through cultural exchange. The organization provides tech-enabled tools and resources that inspire cultural exploration of all 54 African countries.

Description

From Afrobeats topping the music charts to Marvel’s Black Panther movies selling out movie theaters, African culture is the newest pop culture phenomena worldwide. This new appreciation for African culture has sparked a new found interest in the food we eat, the clothes we wear and how we live our lives. For far too long, what is portrayed about African culture has been told from the lens of outsiders with very little connection to the people who live on the land. With advancements in DNA research, people all over the world are able to accurately find out if they have African ancestry. This is life changing for some many people who’s history was practically erased as a result of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.
