WikiProject African diaspora aims to improve all articles related to the cultural contributions of people of African descent all over the world. The African diaspora is the story of how Africans, though scattered and dispersed, managed to preserve cultural traditions while, at the same time, creating new identities influenced by new homelands in places outside Africa.
