At Our Ancestories, we know that there is a deep divide between the truth of African history and the common understanding of it. We strive to bridge this gap through various means including stories, merchandise, and other informational content. Our desire is to make African history more mainstream filling a void that has been missing for years. We believe this will positively affect the modern generations in providing identity. Ultimately, we know that rediscovering African history will help create a better future.
My goal is to showcase the many feats accomplished by these legendary figures through captivating children’s books. I’d like to remedy the widespread ignorance about Africa’s past.
To do this, I’m reconstructing the stories surrounding our ancestors. They are free of the racial prejudice inherited from the slave trade and colonization.
