Mr. Imhotep Must Remain Free!

Mr. Imhotep provides free knowledge about the true African History to everyone around the world. And we do our best to keep it that way. But we have artists to pay and a ton of content to buy in order to provide you with the best experience of African History. We could make a membership website in order to make money but that's not our project. We want to spread the truth, not to restrict it to those who can pay for it. As you probably already know it, our goal is to Rebrand Africa. So, the best way to achieve our mission is to operate without paywalls. For this reason, Mr. Imhotep is funded by donations. Your donations keep us freely available and accessible to all.
