The Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation is the world’s premier organization for African Americans and all others to come to for a fuller awareness and appreciation of their history, the universality of human experiences, and a deeper understanding of slavery and its impact on race relations in America today.

Our mission is to spread Alex Haley’s vision of a world that celebrates ethnic diversity while honoring humankind’s common, universal experiences. Through educational and cultural programs, public forums, and research, the Foundation is dedicated to stimulating greater interest in African American culture, history, art, archaeology, anthropology, and genealogy, and to encourage people of all ethnic backgrounds to search for their own “roots.”

You too can be a part of The Foundation’s legacy,  as there are many ways to participate in the work of The Foundation. We invite you to explore our website to find out how you can discover the roots of your heritage.
