Kinad Inc., founded in 2001, is a South Florida based 501-(c) (3) not-for-profit organization dedicated towards keeping African American history viable for any educational institutions, social and community events throughout our country year round to over 503 locations today, and viewed by over 890,000 people with great reviews. Many ask us how our organization is funded? It has been a major challenge but through small grants and other funding sources, allows us to keep telling the stories and help our children and parents with our other services year round. Kinad has traveled to these locations within 10 years, it has not been an easy quest, quitting is not an option. We realize the importance that any race of people must "Know Thy Self; Like Thy Self and Be Thy Self." a quote by the late Dr. Robert Ingram a honorable and loving man in whom we miss daily, who expired in September of 2007.
Kinad has received numerous awards and honors, Comcast interviews, introduction into the State Capital by Senator L. Bullard, Senator Frederica Wilson, former Tee. Wilbert Holloway, Home Land Security Award, hundred of letters from teachers, principals, students, (4) guest books filled with inspirational comments asking us to keep telling and sharing our African American Mobile Museum across America.

Most children and parents cannot afford to go to a museum, but Kinad African American Mobile Museum travels into all walks of life. We are an inclusive organization and not exclusive, African American History is American history. We include whites and blacks in our museum which is commonly know as the Liberators. Kinad travels to any and all educational programs, events, churches, etc, echoing these words of hope to our diversify environment. We exist to help others understand and disseminated our educational materials and programs throughout our every day changing communities on the major historical data and contributions made by African and African in the Diaspora, unfortunately the relevance of African and African living in the Diaspora contributions made to the world continues to attenuate daily. The history and present contributions of African and African in the Diaspora is not being taught respectfully in America's educational environment to full capacity. It is through my research that many historians and concern citizens is concerned on this issues, of the importance of remembering and teaching K-12th grade about these individuals accomplishment and how they are not properly noted in the American history books, nor even remember as ICON, Goodwill Ambassadors, Humanitarian, Inventors, Soldiers, and a major race of African American that paved the way for the uplifted America success over course of 391 years. This concerns is noted in many newspapers articles, historian, educators, throughout the world. However, on the other hand Kinad uses (2) two traveling units and programs to honor these individuals and recognizes that their contributions was not done in vain. We sustaining the veracity of these heroic people and update present accomplishments of African and African American. (Know Your Past / Know Your Future).
