Yes, FAU has the details or as much as they can currently share on https://friendsoftheafricanunion.com/. Log in required. 
I'm not in direct contact with Michael Rendler.
I know William Wells in KC; helped him establish Encounter KC. He and Michael already had a relationship. Andrew Williams Jr told me about the model; I grew to understand the possibilities for ujima in KC (there have been difficulties establishing such) and thought it would be a good way to increase dialogue around the importance and power of collaboration. BCC started working on it, as promised, after my first trip to Australia. 
KC has https://www.fdic.gov/consumers/community/aei/regional/kansas.html as a template. It's the policy-making arm that implements

One of our greatest accomplishments was reducing the unbanked population by over 50% in two years. This is also part of the CRA. 
We created http://www.moneysmartkc.org/marketing-media/ after requests came in for guidance and assistance. A delegation of Africans met with our point person at the FDIC to learn more. The website is used around the world so we make sure there are general topics while serving the KC region.
Hope this helps as we connect more dots. There are EnVision sites placed strategically throughout the U.S. that can/are connected to opportunity zones --> CRA/CBA <---- 1968 Fair Housing Act, signed into 'law' seven days after Dr. King's assassination. 
Kinda reminds me of data points using SPSS and SAS...where the picture is like right in front of our faces 🤓 
I was working on how England's poor law stategy was continuing an iteration in the U.S., using Hull House as a way to decide on the variables. 
Think 1609 and who came to the British colony, known today as Virginia
