About Teaching Africa Day
Teaching Africa Day was founded by a consortium of educational organizations with the goal of educating children and youth through a collective platform of speakers, art, books, games, and more.

The staff at Teaching Africa Day wholeheartedly believes in a deeper understanding of African roots that goes far beyond simple tales or stereotypes.
