Afripedia is a new discovery platform and a visual guide connecting art, film, photography, fashion, design, music, and other contemporary cultural ideas from African creatives worldwide. Growing up and working in the creative industry, Goitom and co-founder Senay Berhe always felt the need to change the narrative of how Africans are being represented and valued.“We see the creation of Afripedia as providing a resource to highlight Africans on the continent and in the diaspora overall.”

The dynamic duo’s next move in breathing life into the platform was making Afripedia a curated outlet where users can share knowledge, access stories, and build their respective networks, eventually growing into a destination and database for African creative content and services. “Our goal is to build an online and offline platform to highlight and showcase African creatives worldwide. Creativity has no borders, and our common interest in culture is key to a deeper relationship in unifying us.”

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
