African Community Kalamazoo

African Community Kalamazoo is a non-profit and a non-political affiliated organization which started as an idea in 2017 but was officially registered in 2019 with the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The organization was formed to cater for the needs of all Africans in the Kalamazoo county of Michigan and by extension, United States. Also, we promote the unity unity of Africans, and support the development of our host community.
