The Electronic Village welcomes you to our cyberspace journey of Africa...

Our Motherland...Africa!

Did you know that the ancient name of Africa was Alkebulan? reaching out to the mother country has never been easier. You can keep in touch with events and people in Africa without having to make the 12,000 mile journey. There are no substitutes for face-to-face connections, but the technology can give us a taste of what some of the 49 African countries and their people are like. I would like to begin to divide this page up into smaller sections. Any suggestions on how best to do that? If so, please e-mail Wayne Hicks right now and let him know as well!

We are doing a comprehensive series on all 49 countries in Africa over on the Electronic Village blog.   Please join us if you have time or inclination.
