What is a Culture Keeper?  A person who ensures the history, culture, and values of a people persevere and is passed on from one generation to the next. Someone who has a strong, positive sense of self and a clear understanding of the values of the community as they work to build and uplift it. All while operating through an African-centered lens with the expressed intention of strengthening the collective African consciousness.
