The Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc. (AAHGS) strives to preserve African-ancestored family history, genealogy, and cultural diversity by teaching research techniques and disseminating information throughout the community. Our primary goals are to promote scholarly research, provide resources for historical and genealogical studies, create a network of persons with similar interests, and assist members in documenting their histories.

AAHGS sponsors and supports projects and programs all over the country, either on a national basis, through our local chapters or through the initiative of individual members. Our members share their knowledge and discoveries by conducting workshops and giving lectures at events for a wide variety of organizations. 

Objectives of the Program for Chapter Activities

The Program for Chapter Activities (PCA) serves as a guide to each chapter in planning its own programs and activities. The chapter programs and activities should reflect each chapter's unique membership and environment. AAHGS’ objectives are to be achieved each chapter must conduct a program that will encourage the community and prospective members to join the chapter and actively and enthusiastically participate in its activities. The chapter's activity plan should be carefully thought out and implemented to assure the achievement of both AAHGS’ and the chapter's stated objectives.
