The Africa Society


Help create awareness and cultural understanding of Africa’s significance.​

Your donation will support our exceptional Africa-focused programming on topical issues for US audiences, educators, and students, as well as our young adult peer programs for young scholars engaged in Africa-related research.


Africa often remains shrouded in misconception. We're on a mission to change that!

At the Africa Society, we believe that sustainable impact is community-driven. Through collaboration with our local partners, we spearhead a range of programs and initiatives aimed at enriching understanding, fostering inclusivity, and promoting positive change.

Los Angeles, and Atlanta. And we’re still going!!
