Africa Legacy is a mobile application that features 81 short profiles 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. The application serves as a gateway and does not represent the totality of African history, which spans well over 5 thousand years. Purchase of the app at 0.99 cents goes toward helping us create a centralized online database of African history featuring key African leaders, scientist, scholars, activist and progressive thinkers that can be accessed by the African diaspora through use of the Internet.
Because African history is misunderstood, misrepresented and often not acknowledged. That dynamic needs to change. To know your history is to know your power and the African diaspora can no longer afford to ignore its history and the power historical truths provides us as a peoples.
True leadership will inspire others to do better and work together to create cooperative enterprises that provide a mutual benefit to all involved. But without knowledge of past mistakes you are doomed to repeat the mistakes of past leadership. Lacking the knowledge of that history also gives others the opportunity to tell their story in place of our story.
The story's of our greatness are boundless.
