What we do
With the financial support of the United Methodist Church, The Carpenter Foundation and Union Presbyterian Seminary, The Daughters of the African Atlantic has facilitated living and learning spaces in Brazil, Ghana, and the United States. From these collaborations, two volumes have emerged: a special edition of the Journal of Race, Religion, and Ethnicity and Unraveling and Reweaving Sacred Canon in Africana Womanhood (eds. Rosetta E. Ross and Rosemary Amenga-Etego).
In addition to our publications, The Daughters have raised funds to help launch the projects that were an outgrowth of our transcontinental co-working spaces. The Daughters donated $4,485 to the Women in Religion and Culture Institute, in Legon, Ghana. With this money, the Women in Religion and Culture Institute successfully organized local advocacy and education regarding local electoral procedures.
To date, The Daughters has brought over five hundred black women together across lines of difference. Yet counting! No other organization provides this kind of opportunity for collaboration across the Atlantic for women and girls of African descent.
