87 West Street


Alex Haley Montage

The Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation’s mission is to spread Alex Haley’s vision of a world that celebrates ethnic diversity while honoring humankind’s common, universal experiences. Through educational and cultural programs, public forums and research, the Foundation is dedicated to stimulating greater interest in African-American culture, history, art, archaelogy, anthropology, and genealogy, and to encouraging people of all ethnic backgrounds to search for their own “roots.”


The Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation will be the world’s premier organization for African Americans and all others to come to for a fuller awareness and appreciation of their history, the universality of human experiences, and a deeper understanding of slavery and its impact on race relations in America today.
