The farthest-back person they ever talked about was a man they called the African.

Though we are of different tribes and tongues, remember we are the same people!

We all suffer.
If a man’s wise, he learns from it.

Located in historic Annapolis, Maryland, the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial symbolizes the triumph of the human spirit. It conveys Alex Haley’s vision for national racial reconciliation and healing, and stresses the importance of strong family connection and the preservation and honoring of cultural history and heritage.
Dedicated to our African ancestors whose names are forever lost in the oceans of time, and to any peoples that arrived in the New World in bondage, whose unpaid labor forged the foundation of this nation’s rise to greatness. Also, to the descendants of these ancestors who strive to foster a nation that celebrates ethnic diversity within the spirit of brotherhood, mutual respect, and understanding.
The Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Maryland in 1995, as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit profit organization.
Our mission is to spread the vision of Alex Haley, a world that celebrates ethnic diversity while honoring humankind’s common universal experiences.
The Foundation is dedicated to stimulating greater interest in African American culture, history, art, archaeology, anthropology, and genealogy, and to encouraging people of all ethnic backgrounds to search for their own “roots.”
