African Ancestry Family Reunions®
Immerse Yourself In The Culture
Launched in 2019, the African Ancestry Family Reunions (AAFRs) are specifically curated, all-inclusive, birthright journeys to your country of ancestral origin. Now that you have uncovered your genetic ancestry, reconnecting to your family's roots and honoring your ancestors on their original soil is the next step in this sacred journey.
"As an adoptee, it was important that I find my identity.
Discovering that I am of the Mafa people of the Extreme North of Cameroon; then visiting and placing my feet on the soil of my ancestor grandmother’s homeland, fills me with pride and makes me feel more connected to myself."
Wendi Cherry, Masa, Mafa and Kotoko people of Cameroon
"My experience traveling to the land of my Ancestors has been a life-changing experience but knowing that my paternal ancestors came from among the Temne people of Sierra Leone gave me a location and a people that I can return to, that alone gave me a personal experience that made me feel like I never left."
Foday Conteh Kunda, Temne people of Sierra Leone
"For me visiting Africa was purposeful reclamation;
there I was welcomed to reclaim an extremely important part of who I am–Balanta, those who resist!"
Eddie Meeks, Balanta people of Guinea-Bissau
