Media has allowed Afrikan people to create for authentic narratives, retellings, and celebrations of Afrikan cultures across the world. The AKWAABA Series by MangoMedia documents the inaugural journey of the West2West family to Ghana, West Afrika.
Music measures the heartbeat and well-being of our people. Our ability to remain creative before, after, and during oppression is a true mark of resistance and strength. Each week West2West will highlight a musical artitst, rapper, DJ, or musician of the diaspora to further support today's music for the CULTURE.
Fashion is culture. Culture is fashion.
A Line. A Vibe. A Lifestyle.
West2West Movement would like to introduce: “Afrikans with a K by BelvyKuks“
“In the spelling Afrika, a ‘k’ is used rather than a ‘c’ because for many activists the ‘k’ represents an acknowledgment that ‘Africa’ is not the true name of that vast continent.
Afrika spelled with a ‘k’ represents a redefined and potentially different Afrika, and also it symbolizes a coming back together of Afrikan people worldwide. Let it be understood that when one speaks of Afrika and when most whites think of ‘Africa,’ they are coming from two different worldviews.
One view supports the Afrikan ethos, while the other view supports the European ethos.”
-Marcus Mosiah Garvey
