About Togo Archives

Togo Archives is devoted specifically to the reconstruction of Togolese history through the digitization of photographs, postcards, and videos that have shaped and continue to shape our cultural identity.

Started in 2017, Togo Archives was initially created as a private repository for family members to learn about Togolese history, explore what it means to be Togolese and understand the cultural, economic, and political nuances of the Togolese identity. 

In 2019, The Archives became a public initiative to provide an opportunity for Togolese people at home or in the diaspora, people of African descent, and those interested in Togolese culture to explore the country’s history and their origins. 

We research, document, and reconstruct old photographs, postcards, and short stories using primary and secondary sources to make them accessible to the public.

About the Founder

Hi, my name is Kekeli Houngbeke Sackey, and I launched Togo Archives in 2017 to explore Togolese history and document my findings. 

Information about Togolese history on the web is scattered, hard to find, and expensive when you need to dig deeper. The goal of the archives is to centralize my research and provide ample room for exploration, reconstruction, or deconstruction. I digitize artifacts and reference primary and secondary sources to connect the dots. 

I’m glad you’re here. To reach out, email [email protected]
