Established in 1998 by Armon Davis, the idea came about at a study abroad program in West Africa. During a class discussion, professors asked, “What could you as students do to bring Africa back to prominence?” My answer was strengthen the economy through imports with American businesses. The challenge was then rolled into motion when a group of students stated they could start a small business importing African goods and selling them in America. Later that year, African Roots and Heritage Marketplace was born. Over the past 22 years, our company has expanded to include products from all over the world. On behalf of African Roots and Heritage Marketplace, I thank you for shopping with us and I hope you come back soon.
