For The Culture
In March 2018 we will begin traveling through Africa with the goal of exploring each and every African country there is. The goal is to learn and take in as much history and culture as we possibly can to share via video documentary, written essays, and photographs. We will travel for the remainder of the year until we have enough information to express and represent each culture we encounter to the fullest.
We don’t plan on stopping there. Many people seldom are granted the opportunity to return to their homeland to learn of its native peoples culture and history. This is even more true for black Americans as many of us don’t know where in the world we come from specifically. I was fortunate enough to trace my lineage to Kenya, Africa this past year. I then went to visit Kenya and the experience was unbelievably emotional and I can’t put into words how good it felt to be “home”.
Although many of us may not know where "Home" is, through this project we want to give access to as many areas and aspects of the motherland as possible. Even if some aren’t able to trace their lineage or even make the journey there, having images, stories, and access is something we’re hopeful to be able to provide, with respect to the people and the culture.
It doesn’t stop with just going, creating, then producing. We also vow to visit 100 high schools/universities throughout the United States to share pieces of my journey with young learners and more.
Each contributor/donator will receive a hand written letter with a photo from a random or chosen destination we visit. They’ll also receive a usb with photos and videos from our journey.
As seasoned travelers that have been to more than 40 Countries I’m more than excited, anxious, and prepared for this. This is bigger than us. This is for more than Culture. This is for The People.
