The Africa Centre aims to promote positive awareness about Africa, and to help to empower the African diaspora in the UK, and to support Africa's development aspirations.
Over the years leading African artists, writers, politicians and musicians have met in the Africa Centre, been a source of inspiration to one another, and shared their visions of Africa with British people.
