THE AFRICAN DIASPORA
A Diaspora is the dispersion of an originally homogenous entity, such as a language or culture. When we speak of the African Diaspora, we are referring to the umbrella of cultures originating from Africa. These cultures frequently include African, African-American, Afro-Latino, Caribbean, and Caribbean-American.
Achieving Leadership’s Purpose, Inc. is a rigorous two-year leadership development and training program for African Diasporic high school youth with civic interest. It seeks to prepare young men and women for leadership roles and responsibilities, and foster a commitment to service. The multi-component development and training process emphasizes critical thinking, presentation skills, leadership dynamics, and an appreciation for history and culture, and service to others.
