ABOUT THE COUNTRY

The West African country of Nigeria is home to many Africans in the Diaspora.  "Lagos, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, is the largest city in Nigeria and the continent of Africa."  Join an exciting group tour guided by local Nigerians as you take a life transforming, cultural journey that wont break the bank.

“Most African Americans know something is missing, and you want to be reunited with it,” she said. “If you have any level of awareness about your own identity, where you came from, you would have to start asking those questions.” - Mona Boyd

"In the 16th century, Portuguese explorers were the first Europeans to begin significant, direct trade with peoples of southern Nigeria, at the port they named Lagos (formerly Eko)" The business of trade for bronze and other natural resources unfortunately led to include that of people. Millions of Nigerians were enslaved and transported to various parts of the world.

On October 1, 1960  Nigeria declared its independence from British colonization.
