THE AFRICLECTIST: 

Who Is An “Africlectist?”

The Definition of Africlectic in brief.

A combination of two words, ‘African’ + ‘Eclectic’ personifies an “Africlectic” individual.  An Africlectist, falls under one of the following categories:-

  1.  Africans from the continent of sole or dual nationality
  2. Africans or persons of African descent born in the Diaspora; namely the West Indies, Europe, America, etc
  3. A person who identifies with their African and or mixed cultural heritage
  4. Lover and admirer of the African Diaspora

Africlectists are a young worldly, creative new generation of African Diaspora and continental Africans, or admirers of everything African who have a taste for diversity, fashion and culture which can not be defined by trends or labels. The Africlectist is proud of their cultural heritage and is at the forefront of the African Renaissance in music, arts, fashion, lifestyle, science, politics and more. Africlectists are a new generation of socially conscious men and women with a true sense of who they are. They have a desire to stay in touch with their roots and be informed of not only the issues and stories going on in their home country but the Diaspora as well. Most of them are well-traveled and are in tune with Afro fashion, style, entertainment and arts. They are all about advancing the general plight of the diaspora.

Mission

To highlight the African Diaspora’s Renaissance in culture, music, arts, fashion, and more. We raise attention to issues that matter, blur boundaries, promote solidarity in the Diaspora, reclaim our voice in the global socio-cultural discourse and re-define our future as a people with common HERITAGE.
