Welcome to African Association of Kern County (AAKC). This organization was founded in 1994 by members of the African community residing in Kern County, California, U.S.A and incorporated as a non-profit organization. This came about our need to unite all Africans and provide opportunities for sharing our rich cultural experience with the people of Kern County.
Who we are
AAKC is committed to foster and uphold the dignity of our African Cultures and traditions by promoting cultural, social, economic, general welfare and unity of members. It strives to Safeguard the diverse African heritages and traditions inherent in the rich cultures of Africa, and serve as a medium to disseminate this heritage and tradition in Kern County and across the nation. It also serves as a forum to bring people of African descent and friends of Africa in Kern County together.
By encouraging, supporting and promoting network of opportunities among members and the community at large, we would continue to fulfill the tenets of our motto; Unity in Diversity.
We all come from several different countries, traditions and languages, all from Africa. That is what makes us unique. From the Alps of Tunisia to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, from Conakry to Djibouti, we all are brothers and under the umbrella of AAKC we will uphold our unity in diversity. We will uphold our cultures.
Long live AAKC, Long live the motherland, God bless mama Africa and her people.
We’d love to hear from you!
