THE STORY

The Inspiration Behind The Afroriginals

Inspired by the trauma of anti-black racism, The Afroriginals was founded by Tinashe Manolo to effect meaningful and effective change in society by inspiring the Afrocentric community worldwide to reEDUCATE, reIMAGINE, reVIVE, and reESTABLISH Black Afrocentricity.

 

On the conviction to stand up for his family and the black community, the goal has been to give voice to the voiceless, inspire leaders to act beyond words, lead by connecting Africans to solve black issues, and encourage black and Afrocentric people who have sacrificed themselves for the greater good of the people.

How? By leveraging the power of honest story to continue dialogue, using professional expertise to scrutinize potential solutions, empowering creative expression to solve issues that need to be challenged, and creating an outlet for the suppressed voice of black/afrocentric society to action change.

Being an Afroriginal is a singular mandate and an outward expression to embody the conviction that:

When authentic Black/Afrocentric people lead, ACTION follows

When focused Black/Afrocentric people lead, positive CHANGE happens

When  responsible and objective Black/Afrocentric people lead, TRIUMPH is inevitable

The Afroriginals

As an African man, I'm tired of playing second fiddle in society. I'm tired of continuously talking about my lived experience when it's my God-given responsibility to effect the change I want for us black people and establish the future my children and generations to come deserve.

 

This platform is my first act. There's more to come because, without action, it's lip service.
