• Provide information and education about Africa to all Americans through research, writing, and seminars
• Collaborate with Africa-focused groups to encourage their direct involvement in advancing the mission of The Africa Society
• Strengthen the lines of communication between The Africa Society and a broad cross-section of Africans and their institutions on the continent.
