Africa On My Back is a social enterprise that funds study abroad opportunities for African American males while simultaneously supporting small businesses in Ghana through the sale of handcrafted, African-print backpacks.
Brilliant Black Boys Initiative
Through our backpack sales, Africa On My Back supports global experiences for African American boys who are talented, innovative and full of potential. With each purchase you are providing these young men with an opportunity to develop a sense of self identity, gain international exposure, and be inspired to think globally. Ten percent of each sale goes toward helping us raise $17,500 to send a group of #brilliantblackboys to Ghana Summer 2019.
