It is one of the few independent institutions of its kind in the United States; developed to preserve and interpret experiences and achievements of people of African descent.

With the recent autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the vernal Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere, it is an especially exciting time to be engaged in acoustic ecology. In addition to the sounds of the change in season, there are exciting WFAE updates as well as upcoming conferences.
