For all of the fans of Museum Africa, we are still alive and kicking; we’ve just decided to regroup.
When we do regroup, we will resume our membership with the American Alliance of Museums. We will be more aggressive in raising the $50 million to build Jeff Peltier ‘s beautifully designed, state-of-the-art museum that incorporates an atrium with a cascading waterfall, a 400-seat theater named after board member Musa Diallo, thousands of artifacts from all over Africa.
Finally, we will inaugurate a scholarship program to encourage more college students to become archaeologists and anthropologists who can be dispatched to Africa and dig up the history of ancient African civilizations. We have already started this program. We need a temporary home for Museum Africa, and we are asking alumni and current students to help. Please ask the history or African Studies officials at your college and university to consider assisting in helping raising funds and identifying qualified students. Thanks!
