Drs. Rosalind and Leonard Jeffries

For over 60 years, first begining as individuals and later in marriage, Dr. Rosalind and Leonard Jeffries have began their Great and Majestic Walk with African Peoples and our Great Culture. Their Walk has spanded more than 25 African Countries and Hundreds of African Leaders and at the same time they were instrumental in fusing the African American Experience with their African Continental Experience and going even further to Europe, Brazil, the Carribean and other places in the Diaspora. The Highlights are many but our experiences with Alex Haley and Roots, Dr. Coretta King, Dick Gregory, Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, ASCAC, The National Council of Black Studies and our projects in Ghana and Ivory Coast are our Great Loves.

The Jeffries are now settling down and want to make their collections of Sacred Art, Literature, Writings available for Future Generations in the form of Publications, Digital Collections, Art Exhibits, Videos.

To this end, we are asking for your Help. Your contributions of $20, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 will ensure that we will have the resources beyond our retirement funds to do this Sacred Work.
