Africa On My Back, Carry Africa Every Day

Africa On My Back

This summer I did a DNA test to find out where in Africa I’m from. It was a moment I will never forget and always cherish. I think over the last few years there has been a surge in African Americans wanting to know more about their heritage and expressing a strong desire to identify with our culture.

I love seeing “us” walk around being unapologetically black. We love sporting our African earrings, wraps, prints and now bags. 


My son was sent a beautiful handmade backpack from Africa On My Back, which he proudly sported the school the very next day.
