African Summon

About Us

African culture is one generation away from extinction if our elders fail to tell their stories and the stories their parents told them. If they fail to help the next generation appreciate the value of what they were born into and the opportunities that lie therein, the children of Africa are certain to miss their way in a global world. Through its cultural and educational programs, African Summon offers an opportunity for all to join in the rediscovery of Africa and its essence.

“A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.”

― Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart (Nigeria)

"If you know all the languages of the world but not your mother tongue, that is enslavement. Knowing your mother tongue and all other languages too is empowerment"

“And also, one is a mother in order to understand the inexplicable. One is a mother to lighten the darkness. One is a mother to shield when lightning streaks the night, when thunder shakes the earth, when mud bogs one down. One is a mother in order to love without beginning or end. ”

― Mariama Bâ, So Long a Letter (Senegal)
