Mission Statement: To instill Pride (self-love) in the African Diaspora wherever they are, through knowledge (education), financial wellbeing (through economic opportunities), unity (through our shared goals), and To tell our stories in our own voices.

Vision Statement: To help eradicate racism towards the diaspora, poverty in the diaspora, and promote pride and unity within the diaspora.

Here are a few of the means by which we intend to achieve these goals:
1. An epic movie based on the true story of the African Diaspora
2. Education modules about the history of Africa & the African Diaspora
3. A magazine fostering unity and entrepreneurship.

Welcome, ¡Bienvenido/a!, Bienvenue !, Bem-vindo/a! It is with great pleasure, joy, excitement, and love that I welcome the African Diaspora. Our friends, family, and partners around the world to our website. Please feel free to add your welcome in your language of choice if one of those used is not yours. The dream of forming this organization has been long in the making, but I truly believe it is being launched exactly when it’s supposed to.

The reasons for my launching this endeavor can be found on the history page of this website.

We, at ANDAD, feel that we, and everyone else, should know as much about the Songhai Empire of West of Africa, as they do the Roman Empire; we simply ask that the rest of the world is as knowledgeable about the contributions of Africans to civilization as they are about those of the Greeks, (many of whom learned from Africans, according to the ancient Greek Historian, Herodotus, via the Egyptians, whom he identified as Black) We have no intention of exerting superiority, as that would make us no different than those who used the same erroneous philosophy to dominate and suppress us; bur rather, we come in love and humanity, simply exerting our place beside the rest of the world, where we all belong as equals. Let us live together in harmony, looking for solutions to our world’s problems.

Besides sharing our glorious history with the world, other things to be found on this website, are merchandize relating to the Diaspora for sale, links to related websites, sources, suggested books about the Diaspora and its’ history, as well as good news shares about the diaspora. From time to time, we may also launch competitions to generate interest in our goals!

Please feel free to message us with ideas and suggestions. CAUTION: THIS IS A SAFE PLACE AND NO INSULTS ARE ALLOWED. Should you have a criticism of any kind, please do so respectfully. We’re promoting unity and love, and only those things that promote this will be allowed!!

Thanks for visiting, and please share the link with all your friends and family! We have a donation page should you want to contribute towards fulfilling our goals and dreams! Thanks!

We look forward to interacting with you!!



In March of 2017, Rep. Steve King of Iowa told reporter Philip Rucker of the Washington Post, “Western civilization is the most successful civilization the world has ever seen”. In 2019, Ben Shapiro, owner of the Wire Magazine, expressed a similar sentiment when he said: “”I believe Western civilization is superior to other civilizations.”

My initial reaction to these statements was anger and indignation. How dare anyone imply that their race and or culture was superior to anyone else’s? This reaction was short lived as I realized Rep. Steve King and Mr. Shapiro were victims of their education. Did they learn about the culture and contributions of any other race or culture besides theirs? And if they did, were they taught about other cultures in any depth and truth?

The obvious answer is no, other wise they would not make such ignorant statements. Hence, I thought perhaps this might be one of the many causes of racism. If you’re taught that you and yours are the only ones to have made worthwhile contributions to mankind, then the obvious assumption is that everyone else must be less than or inferior in some way! Additionally, if  all you’re taught about a race is that they are ex slaves, it becomes difficult to see them as anything else, especially if the media continuously portrays said group negatively.

By the same token, if all you’re taught about your race is that they were ex salves and therefore somehow inferior, and if you also only see negative images of yourself, unfortunately, you too might begin to self-identify with such images and behave accordingly. Hence, once again, the need for education; that is, we need to know that our history is a glorious one and did not begin with slavery. Imagine discovering that you were not only the first man, but created the first civilization and ruled great kingdoms throughout the world; would you not walk taller and carry yourself with more pride? Again, education is the key to self-love and pride!

Because of the reasons previously listed, I decided to launch an organization that would address these concerns; hence “A New Day-Africa’s Diaspora” was born!!

I would like to thank the following people, Evelyn Coulson, Chaneta Lewis, Idara Okopide, Cecil Weeks, & Tehana Weeks. You were an inspiration! Words are inadequate to express the gratitude I, and ANDAD feel! Obrigado! Thank you! Gracias! Merci! આભાર! Don’t be a stranger, you’re very close family!!!


Here are some resources for those that would like to delve into our glorious past. If anyone would like to suggest other resources they believe would be useful to our diaspora community, please send a message with the information and it will be reviewed. Should it meet our guidelines and standards, we will post it to this page.
