many people feel that we are no longer African's, so theirfore they don't care about of want to go to africa.....how do you feel about africa or do you feel we are still africans? should we carry the name?
I want to go to Africa and work with children with Physical Disabilities I also want to work in a school, since my second major is education. I don't care if people say that I'm not African, shid, I got African blood in me and I feel like it's my obligation to help and give back to where my ancestors came from. And also, for me it would be self gratification to see children getting help and attention that they need and lack.
Well, I've been to Africa a few times already, and I'd encourage every1 of African descent to go (pick a country)...whether it be close descent or not.
Actually, I encourage everyone to go to as many countries of strong black culture that you can. For example, I've never been anywhere in the West Indies. So that's more of a goal for me. Also Brazil, etc...cuz despite nationality..we're all black people. And don't just go and see all the good parts, see the bad parts too (Americorps, anybody?).

..kingdom of classical african antiquity...
