The Nigerian-American Multicultural Council (NAMC) was founded in Houston, Texas, in 2011 by a group of concerned Nigerians, having identified a need to strengthen, promote and support the growing population of Nigerians, not only in Houston but the United States.
We recognized that a new generation of Nigerian-Americans has emerged: Nigerian-Americans, who were born in the United States of America, or brought to America at a very young age. To preserve the Nigerian culture in these children, the older generation must proactively strive to expose them to the culture, values, ethics and traditions of their parents. Failure to preserve their Nigerian heritage may cause the bond between Nigeria and the new generation to be severed.
Thus, the Nigerian-American Multicultural Council (NAMC) was born with the laudable vision of creating a strong and vibrant community of successful Nigerian professionals, young adults and youths, who, while assimilating the American culture, will preserve and pass on their positive Nigerian values and rich heritage to future generations.
NAMC focuses on four core areas: mentorship, professional development, cultural enrichment, and civic and community affairs.
NAMC is an independent 501(c)(3) organization, with no political, religious or ethnic affiliations.
