Black African Diaspora Cultural Center

African American Heritage initiative (AAHi)

We want to provide opportunities for African American/Black students to explore their African American identity to encourage an authentic understanding while engaging in journeys of self-discovery. We accomplish this through unique DNA testing that allows students to find their country and tribe of origin. AAHi will allow students to explore their cultural roots and establish connections and a sense of belonging. We also partner with the African students who know their country and tribe to learn from them and foster relationships. Finally, we focus on the stolen history of African Americans and uncover those truths that are not in the American history books.
