Mission Statement

Our purpose is to advance the study and understanding of ancient African civilizations, while promoting a greater appreciation of the ancient Africans' historical and cultural heritages.

We accomplish our mission by:
  • collecting, preserving and making accessible the historical records and artifacts of ancient African civilizations;

  • promoting open discourse on critical issues affecting ancient and modern Africa; and

  • educating and encouraging citizens to contribute, through public and community service, to shaping our understanding of Africa's past.

As an organization dedicated to public service, we affirm that our understanding of "public" is truly inclusive -- that people of all backgrounds, ages, and viewpoints are made to feel welcome, and that Museum Africa actively makes its resources, programs and services accessible, especially to those who remain under-served. We are committed to creating full access and opportunity in the areas of recruitment, employment, promotion, and work assignments.

We serve the public as we would wish to be served: With a sense of pride, with professionalism, with courtesy, and with a commitment to excellence.

Realizing that communicating openly, honestly, and with integrity is vital to fulfilling our mission, we readily share knowledge with constituents and co-workers, and recognize the responsibility of each of us to stay informed.

As a relatively small institution with a wide-ranging agenda, Museum Africa's success flows directly from the quality of each staff member's contribution, and from a genuine spirit of cooperation and teamwork based on courtesy and mutual respect.

Description

Museum Africa currently is a virtual museum whose goal is to construct a combination museum and library to house the world's largest collection of primary source documents, books and artifacts pertaining to continental Africa's history. Its primary function is to provide public access and a centralized location for the purpose of conducting research on individual African cultures.
