AFROTAK TV cyberNomads were founded in 2001 as cyberNomads, a politically independent initiative for political development in the fields of education, media, and culture and 2007 ecology. We are based in Berlin but work nationally and internationally.
We work for equal partnership in-between Africa and Europe, the emancipation of the African Diaspora Germany and the equality of women and men.
Documenting, communicating and visualizing content of self determined initiatives for political education, media empowerment, liberation art and scientific African renaissance we aim at contributing to the architecture of an overall German-European culture that acknowledges its own power of defining the communication apparatus based on economic, political and cultural resources derived from a colonial past. Only the acknowledgment of an imperial, racist past and present can empower black and white Germany to step into a future that is deriving its strength from the spirit of Diversity and understanding of its people. AFROTAK TV cyberNomads is a platform for perspectives of Black Germans, Afro Europeans and African Diaspora Germany to complement the perspective of white experts and to correct it where necessary to draw a more realistic image of our world and contribute to an ecological sustainable future.

OUR PROJECTS
In 2001 AFROTAK TV cyberNomads promoted the digital architecture for an educational online databank to the Office for Civic Education of the German Government (BPB).
The portal premiered in 2002. We realized three major Media Conferences with local, national and international Black and African media. We collected speakers from academia, business, media and art and network them in Berlin. We develop an alliance of Europe-based African Publishers to market and promote the image of the African continent and black Europe.

The Media Network establishes over 4000 registered on- and offline contacts that lobby with the mainstream of Germany and Europe. The Black German Yello Pages constitute a first structural overview on the African scene in Germany as well as its links within Europe. We pitch our concepts to institutional cooperation partners and sponsors and stage our events at their locations (Goethe Institute Berlin, Heinrich Boell Foundation, and House of the Cultures of the World). We organized press conferences with Thomas Krueger - the head of the Office for Civic Education of the German Government to dispel media perceptions about Africa through effective communication strategies interfacing with the media.

We developed the MAY AYIM AWARD - a Pan-African International Black German Literature Award under umbrella ship of the German section of UNESCO and Published the Book May Ayim Award with Orlanda Publishing House. Our publication The "Black Book" revisits the footnotes and documents German history to promote access and understanding of Africa..s history and Africa..s history in Germany and Europe.

We offer our expertise to universities, companies and NGO..s teaching Change Management in workshops on Content Management as well as on Migration, Integration, cyberspace and the workforce. We access an offline-audience traditionally excluded from the German cultural and educational mainstream network and media-channels accumulating over 11 million visitors since 2001 on our different plattforms. We do target group consulting for public TV (MDR, ZDF, N24), we are present on PublicRadio (Deutschlandfunk, Radio Multikulti, Deutsche Welle) and in print (Zitty, The African Courier, African Heritage, LoNam).

On invitation of the South African Embassy AFROTAK TV cyberNomads in September 07 represented Germany at the African Union - Diaspora in Europe Regional Consultative Conference in Paris. Adetoun Kueppers-Adebisi is Board Member of the African Diaspora Committee Germany on accord of the African Union since 08.

In 2009/ 2010 AFROTAK TV cyberNomads coordinated the workshops Media & Culture for the inclusion of NGO´s input into the Berlin State legislation proposals against racism and ethnic discrimination (Landesaktionsplan gegen Rassismus & ethnische Diskriminierung) on behalf of the Migrationsrat Berlin Brandenburg.

In 2009 and 2010 AFROTAK TV cyberNomads also participated in the coordination of Black History Month Berlin organizing and moderating Panels on
Black German Cultural Identity, The Future Perspectives of Schwarz in Deutschland, Structural Racism in Academia and Sport or on Black Academia in a White context. The events were funded by Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung and Integrationsbeauftragter des Berliner Senats.

In 2010 we published “Negritude – Schwarze Globale Befreiungsbewegungen des 20. Und 21. Jhdts mit Fokus Deutschland“ in der Anthologie RASSISMUS AUF GUT DEUTSCH

AFROTAK TV cyberNomads @ afrotak.com continues the Black Media Perspective in a White German context. Our video channel AFROTAK TV youtube.com/AFROTAKTVcyberNomads showcases the culture and Media around the Black Atlantic with a specific focus on Germany.

AFROTAK TV cyberNomads are constantly looking for new partners and co - operations as well as for supporters and sponsors for innovative Black Community Projects.
