Africatown Innovation Center: Fulfilling our Community Needs


Yours truly, Africatown Innovation Center :

“Education IS a community institution …we need to build our OWN schools for OUR children…it should be run, supervised, implemented and administered BY the community” – Dr Umar Abdullah Johnson []

Africatown Innovation Center is a vibrant hub and resource with many types of programs for all people of African-descent. This video serves the purpose of bringing greater awareness to the need for such an “Africatown Innovation Center” and the types of programs currently housed in the center.

We’d like to thank all of those who helped with the production of this video: interviewer, interviewees, production team, community etc….Those who were filmed shared candid comments courageously and approved the use of their comments for this video. Those who helped put the film together spent a great deal of time and energy in doing so. And a special thanks to Africatown Innovation Center for being in existence and allowing us to be apart of such a groundbreaking movement.
