This is NOT your regular old dry “dates and places” history class!!
African History, Heritage & Me is a holistic, African-centered experience that includes music, games, fun projects, challenges, geology, astronomy, geography and more!!
African History, Heritage & Me AfriVenture Summary
Who are Afrikans? Where are Afrikans? What Legacy Did our Ancestors Leave to the World? Did Our Ancestors Discover Time? Who Were the Ancient Timekeepers? What Secret Messages Did Our Ancestors Leave us in their Stories and in the Sands?
In this class we will attempt to answer these questions through a wholistic process of discovery. By examining primary information through many disciplines including geology, geography, astronomy, mythology and more we will construct a preliminary understanding of who our ancestors were and therefore the unlimited potential of who we as Afrikans, can be.
