Eric Edwards from Clinton Hill, Brooklyn has $10 Million worth of African art (1600 pieces of that spans all 54 countries on the continent and goes back as far as 4,000 years) in his apartment. He became interested in the arts of Africa and the diaspora as a young child. Edwards’ father made sure to teach him about black history and the history of Africa as a way to understand racism. He hopes to open an African art museum called The Cultural Museum of African Art by the summer of 2016.
