Founded in 1965, Kamoinge’s mission has been to “honor, document, preserve, and represent the history and culture of the Africa Diaspora with integrity and respect for humanity through the lens of Black photographers.” The word “Kamoinge” comes from the language of the Kikuyu people of Kenya, and means “a group of people acting together.” That spirit continues to reflect the ideal that animated the collective.
