Africa America Institute Records

Credo digital

Founded in 1953 by a multi-racial collective of educators including Horace Mann Bond, then President of Lincoln University, and William Leo Hansberry, a professor of history at Howard University, the Africa American Institute has encouraged and supported African students in pursuit of higher education in the United States. From its early years, AAI provided financial and social support for African students studying in the U.S., but it has expanded its activities in scope with the goal of helping to building leadership for Africa within the academic, professional, business, and policy making classes. It has become a vibrant intellectual center for developing human capacity, drawing together thought leaders, researchers, and entrepreneurs interested in issues relating to the continent.

A massive body of material documenting the history of the AAI from its founding in the early 1950s to the present, the collection is a remarkable resource for study of American relations with Africa as the continent emerged from colonial domination. With a focus on the history of educational support and exchange between the continents, the collection contains a vibrant record of the growth of leadership in Africa.

Background on Africa America Institute

Students studying in Lesotho, 1963

Students studying in Lesotho, 1963

Founded as The Institute for African-American Relations in 1953, the Africa America Institute (AAI) has played a notable role in fostering educational ties between the United States and African countries. At a time when the decolonization and liberation movements in Africa and the demands of the Cold War shone a spotlight on international relations, the AAI emerged as a major source of funding for African students wishing to study in the U.S. and a voice for Africa in the United States. As it has evolved through the years since, the AAI has launched a series of initiatives to strengthen the human capacity of Africans and promote the continent's development through higher education and skills training, while promoting dialogue between the continents' political and economic leaders.

The AAI's vision began to take form with its earliest organizers, a multi-racial group that included two prominent scholars with deep interests in Africa. A sociologist, educator, and civil rights advocate, Horace Mann Bond (1904-1974) was President of Lincoln University when the AAI was founded and was keenly aware of the school's sizable number of African alumni, including Nigerian independence leaders Nnamdi Azikiwe and Ozumba Mbadiwe. Perhaps the key event in piquing Bond's interests in the continent, however, was the invitation he received from West African alumni in 1949 to visit the continent and review the higher education systems. In October and November of that year, Bond toured Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Senegal, meeting with civic, educational, and political leaders, and establishing direct contacts that would prove invaluable in the early history of AAI. In the 1950s, Bond returned to Africa to promote American economic investment, and his commitments continued to grow through service on the Board of the Council on Race and Caste in World Affairs, participation in the first Congress of Black Writers and Artists, and as both an organizer and founding president of the American Society of African Culture.

Joining Bond in establishing the AAI was William Leo Hansberry (1894-1965), a pioneering American historian of Africa who served on the faculty at Howard University. A specialist in Ethiopian history, Hansberry, like Bond, was a scholar-activist, and has been considered to be the first person to offer a course in African history at a U.S. university. In addition to his contributions to AAI, Hansberry helped found the All-African Students Union (of which Bond was a Board member), the African Students Association, and the All-African Student Union of the Americas, as well as the Africa House, a retreat for African students that became noted for nurturing and connecting young leaders in the independence movements.

From its base in Washington, D.C., the AAI first directed its focus on a problem all too familiar to educators: although a steady stream of highly motivated African students had made its way across the Atlantic, limited resources forced many to abandon their degrees before completion. In response, the AAI began what would become a decades-long commitment to offering scholarship support for African students in the U.S., while simultaneously seeking to build more comprehensive, longer-term support for education. To raise awareness of Africa's challenges and promise, the AAI began publishing a magazine, Africa Report in 1956, and they began building relations with governmental officials in the U.S., particularly after President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Africa Bureau at the Department of State in 1958.

Several of the AAI's most successful initiatives were launched in the 1960s, an era when both federal and private funding for international projects began to flow more freely. Two programs launched in 1961 proved immediate successes. The AAI's International Visitors Program helped bring representatives from African countries and institutions to the U.S., while the broadly collaborative Africa Scholarship Program of American Universities (ASPAU) provided a firmer base of support for undergraduate study by Africans in US universities. More ambitiously, the Africa Graduate Fellowship Program (AFGRAD), begun in 1963, extended fellowship support to graduate study at American universities, and more notably, it shifted emphasis beyond the support of individuals to building capacity in Africa, preparing students to enter government service, higher education, or the private sector. Extending the logic a step further, the AAI established its annual African-American Dialogue in 1968, which created opportunities for leaders from both the governmental and private sectors in the US and Africa to gather in an informal, structured setting.

With the transformation of the African map through independence and the evolution of priorities, the AAI fine-tuned its programs in the 1970s through 1990s, sometimes narrowing its focus on specific regions. The persistence of apartheid in southern Africa and of colonial rule in Lusophone countries absorbed a great deal of the AAI's energy, resulting in the Southern African Training Program (SATP) in 1976, in which trainees from South Africa and Zimbabwe attended the National University of Lesotho, and later programs such as a USAID-funded project on development in Portuguese-speaking Africa and a training program in agriculture in Mozambique. While some program were narrowly focused, others reached out into newly emerging fields of need. In 1990, the Advanced Training for Leadership and Skills Project (ATLAS) became a force in promoting sustainable development, yielding alumni such as Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai, while between 2002 and 2007, the African Technology for Education and Workforce Development (AFTECH) applied information technologies to the need for accelerating workforce development in Africa. The AAI also increased its efforts to address women's issues in Africa, including the 10,000 Women Initiative, a 2008 partnership with the Goldman Sachs Foundation that offered non-degree and business degree training for African women.

Developing long-term, sustainable strategies for promoting economic and political investment in Africa has become a priority for the AAI in the twenty-first century. Strategic partnerships with public and private groups have allowed the AAI to hold a steady succession of international programs and conferences to promote connections between economies and nations. The Investment in Southern Africa conference in Windhoek in 1996 was followed in 1997 by a congressional seminar series, Africa Thursday, which became a prime locus for lobbying policymakers, opinion leaders, and administration officials. The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP), launched in 2002, became a conduit for African men and women who had demonstrated leadership potential to pursue advanced study around the world.

As the AAI approached its 50th anniversary it selected its first African President and CEO, Amini Kajunju, a native of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Its current programs include a Future Leaders Legacy Fund, the Transformational Leadership Program (TLP), an Annual Awards Gala, a State of Education in Africa Conference, and the AAI Speaker Series. As of 2015, the AAI had over 23,000 alumni.

Contents of Collection

The Africa America Institute collection is a massive body of official records from one of the premier institutions in the United States devoted to supporting opportunities for empowerment and education for the next generation of African leaders. Although the earliest years of the organization are relatively sparsely documented, the signature programs of the 1960s through the 2000s are well represented, ranging from the conferences, meetings, and colloquia to the key educational support programs, African Training for Leadership and Advanced Skills (ATLAS), and Africa Graduate Fellowship Program (AFGRAD), the Partners for International Education and Training, the South Africa Training Program (SATP), the International Visitor Program (IVP), and the Development Training Program for Portuguese Speaking Africa.

The programmatic content in the collection is supplemented by an series of newsclippings organized by country and by a The publications include a nearly complete representation of works from the AAI itself, along with incomplete, but sometimes extensive runs of newspapers and magazines from Africa, and particularly from Southern Africa. The six feet of photographs in the collection offer some visually compelling documentation of development efforts in Africa, including work done by UNICEF and other governmental and non-governmental agencies working parallel to AAI.

Between 1958 and 1998, the AAI was called The African-American Institute.

Series descriptions

Although the earliest years of the AAI are not as thoroughly represented in the collection as later years, Series 1 contains a strong overview of the organization, growth, and oversight of the organization during its first half century of operations. The series contains the standard run of annual reports, scattered correspondence, information on lobbying political leaders in the United States on matters pertaining to Africa, assorted minutes of boards and committees, and general files (both research files and "subject" files) used in administration. There is, as well, a considerable sum of information on AAI conferences and events, including correspondence with noteworthy participants.

Among other noteworthy material in Series 1 are thick files on the administration of grants received by AAI, although for the most part, materials on financial aspects of grants administration have not been retained. Neither the general financial records of the AAI nor personnel records have been retained.

Series 2 includes extensive documentation of most of the programs undertaken by the AAI over the years, with particularly rich content for the African Training for Leadership and Advanced Skills (ATLAS) and AFGRAD, the Partners for International Education and Training, the South Africa Training Program (SATP), the International Visitor Program (IVP), and the Development Training Program for Portuguese Speaking Africa.

Series 3 contains records of thousands of students and alumni associated with AAI educational exchanges. The series includes application packets, progress reports during their time in American universities, and exit reports. Some files include student transcripts, letters of recommendation or review, and special requests for assistance.

Restrictions on access:

Series 3 is closed to research to protect student privacy.

The AAI collection contains hundreds of publications pertaining to Africa. In addition to theAfrica Report, the most important general publication of the Institute, the series includes a thick run of SASPost, a product of the South African Training Program, and the annual Directory of Fellows.

Series 4 also contains works on several themes (e.g. women's issues in Africa) along with an array of newspapers, newsletters, and magazines published in Africa, primarily in the 1980s and 1990s. While none of these comprise a complete run, they provide a valuable cross-section of public discourse on the continent.

Organized country-by-country, Series 5 contains extensive files of clippings from newspapers and popular media -- both U.S.-based and African -- covering a wide variety of current events and topics, including foreign and domestic politics to economy, sport, and culture. Collected primarily during the critical decades of the 1970s and 1980s as a resource for current awareness, these clippings were sometimes gathered together into informational packets and reproduced, focusing on critical areas such as apartheid, food insecurity, and economics.

Series 6 contains hundreds of photographs, videotapes and films, and sound recordings documenting the activities of the African America Institute over the years. The AAI documented conferences and events they sponsored and the programs they operated, and the series contains some materials intended for training, instructional use, or promotion.
