The word Afmerica breaks down into three parts:
1. If you cover the letter “f” it says America
2. If you cover the word “me” it says Africa
3. When you cover the word “Africa” it says “me”
Which stands for: African American me”
To promote “identity” for African American people that creates an outlet of pride and unity through new symbols that advocates the duality of African American people.
To quote the African American author Jawanza Kunjufu, “We need to change the values of our people from individualism, materialism, and short term gratification to collectivism, freedom and long term self sufficiency”.

This is about recognizing who you are as the individual. You have worth. Recognize the greatness that is within you. Recognize what was inherited to you from the struggle. We want to teach you the power of who you are and how God has made you.
The Power of the Nation
We were victorious through the struggles. Understanding that we’re better together, we made it. A house divided cannot stand. We are more than conquerors. With that, no weapon formed against us can prosper. We cannot or will not be defeated. Defeat is not an option.

Our LOGO was launched and inspired by God in 1997 – “AFmerica”.
So you mean to tell me that someone down your ancestry line survived being chained to other human bodies for several months in the bottom of a disease-infested ship during the Middle Passage, lost their language, customs and traditions, picked up the English language as best they could while working free of charge from sun-up to sun-down as they watched babies sold from out of their arms and women raped by ruthless slave owners.
Took names with no last names, no birth certificates, no heritage of any kind, braved the Underground Railroad, survived the Civil War to enter into sharecropping. Learned to read and write out of sheer will and determination, faced the burning crosses of the KKK, everted their eyes at the black bodies swinging from ropes hung on trees. Fought in World Wars as soldiers to return to America as boys, marched in Birmingham, hosed in Selma, jailed in Wilmington, assassinated in Memphis, segregated in the South, ghettoed in the North, ignored in history books, stereotyped in Hollywood.. and in spite of it all someone in your family line endured every era to make sure you would get here and you receive one rejection, face one obstacle, lose one friend, get overlooked, and you want to quit? How dare you entertain the very thought of quitting. People you will never know survived from generation to generation so you could succeed. Don’t you dare let them down.
Give this to your young people who don’t know their history and want to get weak.
It is NOT in our DNA to quit!

AFMERICA VALUE PILLARS
To support, inspire, & educate.
AFMERICA is a concept given by God.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
You have to get personally involved to make a difference.
Recognize who you are and where you came from.
Together we stand, divided we fall. We’re better together.
Love thy neighbor as you love yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you will not have pride in anything else.
AFMERICA believes in the concept of each one, reach one, and teach one.
WHAT THE FOUNDERS HAVE TO SAY
Afmerica was founded out of a need for African Americans to have a logo that speaks specifically to their struggles, hardships, and most of all accomplishments! It’s the only logo in the universe that represents the African American people.
One thing I genuinely feel in order for us to succeed as a people united. We must first learn to speak to one another, an inviting hello and a smile, no more looking away but giving eye contact which says I see you. Come on people, “I SEE YOU!”
