Since 2004, ASRI has been dedicated to tracing the historical footsteps of African-Americans, both free and Enslaved, who lived in America during the 17th-19th centuries. The African Scientific Research Institute is a leading, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving African American culture as a legacy for future generations. The institute is comprised of multi-disciplinary scientists and historical scholars who have come together to trace African American history to what we have identified as the first progenitors.
