Abstract

This research will discuss how African culture has survived throughout the diaspora. Through misinformation and myth perpetuated in part by Eurocentric media, many don’t recognize the lasting legacy of African culture. A closer look at music, language, food, religion, etc., will help dismantle false narratives pertaining to African culture and enlighten people to what has been retained. For example, Nigerian culture can clearly be found within Brazilian culture’s religious practices. My research seeks to encourage accurate and precise information in relation to the depiction of Africa and support a multicultural lens on African and Black History in our educational system.
