Created by artist Micah Johnson, Aku was inspired by one boy's question: Can astronauts be black?
Aku is rooted in four pillars: community, vision, creativity, and relationships.
Micah Johnson envisions the future of Aku as “Building Worlds Around Dreams” alongside the Aku community.
The future is symbiotic: Grow the character of Aku. Build and Mobilize the Akuverse together. Empower, Encourage, and Educate each other.
