SHOWCASING AFRICA THROUGH AFRICAN EYES
Traditions ♦ Knowledge ♦ Legacy
Many children of African descent in public schools tend to dissociate from their cultural heritage as a result of the myth and stereotypes perpetuated against the continent. In order to increase the knowledge, understanding, and appreciation for Africa’s place in world history, AIACE will showcase Africa through “African Eyes”
♦ By promoting cultural knowledge, AIACE aims to expose children and youth of African descent and those of other backgrounds to authentic Africa through heritage programs and projects.
♦ AIACE seeks to supplement the meager-to-no inclusion of African cultural heritage awareness by school district to ground the children of African descent, instilling in them pride in their rich cultural heritage, enabling them in the demonstration of healthy self-concepts that center in their multicultural environment.
