About the Site

AKP promotes Critical African Studies. It disseminates Africa-centered, evidence-based knowledge on Africa and its Diaspora.

By far the best Internet source for anyone interested in past, present, and future scholarship with regard to Africa. High quality journals and constantly updated important information for anyone interested in the field or continent. -- Barry Hallen, former Professor of Philosophy, Morehouse College, Fellow & Associate, W. E. B. Du Bois Institute, Harvard University

AKP is peer-reviewed and curated. It is an electronic, full-text resource in the humanities and social sciences.

Africa Knowledge Project, known as AKP, is an initiative by Africa Resource Center, Inc., dedicated exclusively to academic research on Africa and its Diaspora. AKP focuses on critical Africa-centered, evidence-based knowledge and research from a diverse range of disciplines. While it values the tremendous contribution of Western scholarship, AKP moves away from epistemic schemes of interpretation that represent Western world-views and research interpretations as central and global, and all others as indigenous or vernacular. AKP produces and disseminates rich, critical narratives and analyses that contribute to global scholarship.

About the Publisher

Africa Resource Center is a strategically managed organization that meets its objectives by dedicating resources and staff to the provision of information on and about Africa. In producing and disseminating materials on the various regions of global Africa, Africa Resource Center encourages national, regional, continental and global debates on issues that are specifically pertinent to global Africa. It brings together databases, streams of research analysis, and cultural productions that are largely separated from each other. In so doing, it promotes socioeconomic evaluations, and cultural and political interpretations with substantial African content.

If you're looking for research material on Africa, or would like to meet with resource people with the right expertise, we'll help you meet your objective. We will link you up with scholars and professionals who would be interested in working with you on your project. If your need is strictly informational we will help you procure the needed data. We can be the affordable research department you always wished you had. We will provide you with the kind of professional guidance few small organizations can otherwise afford. Just call or email us when you need us -- for a single project, or a series of projects.
