The Encyclopedia of African Cultural Heritage in North America provides an available prepared reference at the retention and continuity of African tradition inside of the United States.  Our conceptual framework holds, first, that tradition is a sort of self-knowledge and information approximately self on this planet as transmitted from one individual to another.  moment, that African humans continually create their very own cultural historical past as they go through time and space.  3rd, that African descended humans residing open air of Africa also are participants to and perform the construction of African cultural background.  Entries specialize in illuminating Africanisms (cultural retentions traceable to an African foundation) and cultural continuities (ongoing practices and tactics wherein African tradition remains to be created and formed).  Thus, the concentration is extra culturally particular and not more serious about the wider transatlantic demographic, political and geographic matters which are the point of interest of comparable contemporary reference works. We also focus much less on biographies of individuals and political and fiscal ties and extra on procedures and manifestations of African cultural heritage and continuity.
