BREATHING LIFE INTO THE FUTURE
African Diaspora Council, Inc. has been promised a building located at 1425 Ferguson Ave. Saint Louis, MO. 63133 that needs a lot of work. The building is sitting on 8.25 acres and we strongly believe that the building will be a good fit for our organization’s vision and goals. Therefore, we are trying to raise enough funds to transfer ownership and bring the building to standard.
African Diaspora Council is an organization that is fostering the unity of all peoples of African origin. D.N.A analysis is proving that we all have a common origin, therefore all who have the interest of Africa and her children are welcome to help us develop this history changing project.
Being a foreigner in a new country is daunting and there is a need for an organization like African Diaspora Council, Inc. to help integrate the two groups of peoples. Also a study of our forefathers and their culture provides factual lessons and stability for those who have been away from motherland for centuries or have never been there. This is also one of the goals of our organization.

Defining the African Diaspora
The modern African Diaspora consists of millions of peoples of African descent living in various societies who are united by a past based significantly, but not exclusively upon ‘racial’ oppression and the struggles against it; who, despite the cultural variations, political and other divisions among them share an emotional bond with one another and with their ancestral continent. They are people who; regardless of their location, face broadly similar problems in constructing and realizing themselves.
The construction of a Diaspora is an organic process involving movement from an ancestral land, settlement in new lands and sometimes re-settlement elsewhere. ADC Inc. seeks to answer some provocative questions that will illuminate the process at work among the peoples of African descent, who are still venturing to construct themselves and command their destiny. Regardless of their location, members of the Diaspora share an emotional attachment to their ancestral land and are cognizant of their dispersal and if conditions warrant of their oppression and alienation in the countries in which they reside.
They also tend to possess a sense of ‘racial, ethnic, or religious identity that transcends geographical boundaries to share broad cultural similarities, and sometimes articulate a desire to return to their homeland. .
African Diaspora Council Inc. is at the forefront of the community, helping to shape a better future of tomorrow today in the U.S. as well as around the World.
The definition used here of "African community" is largely cultural and does not describe a single monolithic group. On the contrary, for us, African means any person living in the United States, or in the world, with an African heritage. In addition, it also includes anyone with a vision to help promote development in Africa.
