The rich and diverse tapestry of African cultures, traditions, and histories has often been misrepresented and misunderstood. The continent’s story has been told by outsiders, leading to misinterpretations and stereotypes. There is a growing movement to reclaim the narrative and empower Africans to tell their own stories, reshaping global perceptions.
The portrayal of Africa by non-Africans has deep historical roots, dating back to the era of colonialism and imperialism. During this period, European powers imposed their own narratives on Africa, depicting the continent as a primitive and exotic land in need of civilization. This narrative served to justify the exploitation and subjugation of African peoples and resources.
The Fatherland Foundation is dedicated to designing projects aimed at rediscovering African identity. These initiatives aim to delve into the rich historical and cultural of Africa and the African Diaspora communities.
If your school would like to participate in the Fatherland Foundation School’s program, you can apply to be a Partner School.
