You know that "je ne sais quoi" thing about cultural creatives most don't get? It's time to introduce you to a phenomenon that has been kept hidden for centuries, that represents a population that has been underserved, yet has contributed so much. Their intellectual capacity is second to none, but because they strive for excellence they are consistently overlooked. This population come from diverse backgrounds encompassing a love of beauty, intellect, and discerning tastes. 

The lion has awakened, the energy of readiness is in the air, the paradigm has shifted and a "cultural revolution" is at hand. The doors are being opened to AFRIKIN® to bring an awareness to the African influence in society. We will celebrate the African diaspora through fashion, food, art, music and talks. We are participating in the business of doing good by highlighting intellect, academia, business and cultural creatives. There is an African proverb that says: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." Humans tend to have an 'inherent' desire to belong and be an important part of something greater than themselves. This is AFRIKIN®.

The AFRIKIN® event will include: panel discussions, lectures on trending social topics, current issues and how they affect business, talks with various industry experts, microfinance, nonprofit managers, and global ambassadors. Artists who advocate for causes, culinary, and musical offerings reflective of African culture will be featured. It is an innovation ecosystem: brain gain that will encourage like-minded individuals to be social change agents with an exclusive african inspired dining experience. 

After much research and focus group studies it is quite clear that there's a lack of black enthused, black owned businesses, gatherings, and events for people of color in South Florida. It is time that we maximize our efforts to encourage collaborations. With careful planning we created AFRIKIN® as a means to break down barriers, build communities of social inclusion, and develop a network for a definite future for people of color and immigrants through globalization and technology. 

They play an important role in the consumer market. In order to fully understand the economic and commercial potential of people of color, we must take a look at the phenomenon of brand AFRIKIN®. As of today, the African diaspora is one of the most important in the world in terms of numbers. There are over 1.4 billion people that speak over 2,000 languages, 55 nations that are internationally recognised as members of either the African Union or the United Nations or both and the African diaspora, one continent with one common thread...kinship. Look around and see how people of color, living all over the world are continuously shaping the cultures of North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia. We must secure partnerships and collaborate with industry organizations and associations of a high pedigree to get the major players to commit to investing our dollars back in our community. 

The key aspect for consideration is “The Black Dollar,” which continues to rise as the percentage of people of color within the middle class increases. Today, 1 in 3 Africans are middle class. Statistics show that this niche market is migrating south. In South Florida, AFRIKIN® is ready to welcome this influx. It will not only have permanent economic benefits, but will also showcase the best of South Florida.

One of our primary objectives is to enlighten and inspire cultural and heritage tourism, starting with Miami. Events have impacts that go well beyond what can be measured in economic terms. AFRIKIN® is a platform that serves as a stimulus to help launch the careers for local business professionals, entertainers, artisans, chefs and more. Our plan is to continue to provide opportunities for new and upcoming talent in the marketplace.

AFRIKIN® will therefore contribute to the quality of life across the Greater Miami area by strengthening communities, providing unique activities and events, building awareness of diverse cultures and identities, and acting as a source of community pride. We can invite big name retailers like Anthropologie for example, who is known for featuring and collaborating with local artisans to showcase their work on a larger scale. We will have specific events that will showcase products coupled with sponsorships to discuss the scope of work from ideation to final product and the process involved in-between coupled with words from the people in other departments that were involved in getting it from production to retail.

AFRIKIN® is for appreciation and celebration, with a dogged determination that ensures inclusiveness using an African inspired network event to connect innovators and cultural creatives of Africa and the African diaspora. 

It's been a long road but it was worth the wait. We present this opportunity to make up for any unintended consequences. Thank you so much for everything you've done and everything you will do to keep moving our people forward. And so it is, go ahead and tell a friend we are AFRIKIN®!
