Join Legacy Foundation Japan
The Legacy Foundation Japan is an organization that works for the betterment of African Americans and those of African descent, both in the United States and abroad. The Foundation connects all Black communities in Japan to a wider audience, reports on local and global news associated with the Black experience, and has a specific physical and highly organized digital location to host educational and inspirational events and networking opportunities for individuals and businesses.
With a global mindset, Legacy Foundation Japan enables the support of African American people and culture regardless of national borders.
There are myriad groups in Japan that focus on the Black experience. Some focus on specific interests while others cover a broader scope of one’s life and goals. If you’re interested in learning more about who they are and the amazing resources they offer, check out our list to get your started.
