African Legacy is a mobile application that features short chronicles of past African leaders, activist, and progressive thinkers that contributed to the development of the continent and fought for its independence. Their memory needs to be honored and their stories told to the next generation and to a generation that has forgotten their sacrifices.
Because to know your history is to know your power. Without knowledge of one's past and the history of leadership that helped shape it. You are doomed to repeat the mistakes of that past. Lacking the knowledge of your history also gives others the opportunity to control you through misinformation and lies.
True leadership will inspire others to do better and work together to usher in a new age of technology and manufacturing that will create jobs on the continent in which the African community can use their vast resources to create diverse industries in the region.
The leaders highlighted in African legacy understood this.
