The Encyclopaedia Africana Project (EAP) is a Pan African initiative headquartered in Accra, Ghana, with the mission to produce and publish peer-reviewed articles devoted mainly to Africa and its people, including the people of African descent outside the continent and to operate as the preferred channel for authentic information on Africa and about African life within the continent and to the rest of the world.
We seek to research into African life, history, economic, architecture, etc. which will be authentically African in its point of view and at the same time a product of scientific scholarship, providing a richer and more authentic and nuanced narrative of Africa and about Africans on the continent and in the diaspora. The project is expected to expose the youth to self-knowledge and self-re-discovery leading to new thinking in the minds of Africans and restoration of the African dignity.
The African Union (AU) has adopted the EAP as one of the Pan Africanist Movement legacy projects to be revitalized to help drive the Union’s Agenda 2063 vision of building an Africa with a strong cultural identity, common heritage, values and ethics.
