The Encyclopaedia Africana Project (EAP) was initiated by the first President of the Republic of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, together with the eminent African Diaspora scholar, Dr. W. E. B DuBois, in 1962. TheEAP was designed to document the authentic history of Africa and African life, with particular focus on the history, cultures, social institutions and contribution of Africans and people of African descent to world development. The realization of this project was expected to expose Africans to self knowledge, leading to new thinking and the restoration of African dignity.
