The concept of the African Diaspora is much older than its contemporary formulation. If we accept that the birthplace of human beings, based on archaeological evidence is Africa, and from there begun its dispersal around the world, then we can argue logically that the African Diaspora is the first constituted formulation of human migration. There are many other transformations which this project will consider.
