the true pan african story

Our Own story
Shapes our Future

The world is yearning for a new humanity – where there will be racial justice, freedom for all, and respect for each other’s culture. The youth need inspiration from their own history, their own past, their own arts, and cultures – their own heritage. As people of African descent, we have chosen to dedicate a site in Ghana, on the continent of Africa, to locate a unique museum complex, beyond the galleries, where the world will experience a new education, a new healing, a new inspiration – our contribution to a new humanity.

According to United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), there are approximately 95,000 museums in the world today. Integrated Library Management System (ILMS) catalogs 33,100 museums in the US. The Pan African Heritage World Museum (PAHW), the centerpiece of the Pan African Heritage World Cultural Complex, is unique in its field. We are the only digital and physical museum in the world with a mission to tell the truth about the African origins of humanity and the centrality of great African civilizations in the development of world civilizations. Our core values are integrity, transparent governance, excellence, and service to humanity.

Our mission

Our mission is to create an environment for people of African descent and all others to discover and experience the true history of the Origins of Humanity, the Development of Cultures and the Great Civilizations of the Nile Valley that influenced the past, inform the present, and will shape the future, serving as an inspiration for generations to come.

The True Story

The African story has been told for long in a way that has been contested by those whose stories are being told. Imagine a World-Class African Heritage Museum by Africans to tell the true African story.
