Acholonu Centre for African Cultural Studies
Dedicated to the
Research and Study of African Culture
The Catherine Acholonu
Centre for African Studies was set up as a research outfit aimed
at separating fact
from fiction and to search out and document Black
Africa's Cultural and Scientific contributions to human civilization.
A major entry point of its work is the research work on the Ikom Monoliths of Cross River State,
Nigeria. More than 300 inscribed ancient stones located in the villages
and forests of Ikom Local government in South Eastern Nigeria, which have
attracted researchers for over a century. The centre began work on the
monoliths in 2001.
