Birthright AFRICA is creating the next generation of global leaders and entrepreneurs proud of their African heritage, confident in pursuit of their innovative aspirations with a continued connection to the African continent.
In partnership with the City University of New York (CUNY), Birthright AFRICA selected 7 Scholars of African descent (pictured above) for the 2017 pilot group through the CUNY Black Male Initiative (BMI) which increases the educational success of underrepresented young men and women of color. Scholars explored their cultural roots and legacy of innovation in NYC and DC in June and July before the 10 day trip to Ghana in August 2017. Birthright AFRICA is planning for 10 Scholars from CUNY's Office of Special Programs to participate in the Summer 2018 program and receive the free birthright opportunity to explore their cultural roots and legacy of innovation. Donate today to give this birthright opportunity to future Scholars and join us on the journey as we explore the Cultural Sites, Museums, Universities, and Innovation Partners reflecting the resilience and brilliance of people of African descent.
