AfriVentures Gratitude

9 Dec
Thank You! Medase! Asante Sana! To all the families that joined us on an AfriVenture for the past 12 weeks!
It is hard to believe that yesterday was our last AfriVenture of the Fall. Time sure flew and we are so grateful that the time was so well spent with such a FANTASTIC and inspiring group of Afronauts! My husband and behind-the-scenes partner Jeffrey and I are so grateful to you for joining us this session and we sincerely hope that we met your expectations and that your children learned a lot and want to learn more. See you all in January when we begin our next session of AfriVentures!  Here’s are a few pictures of the great memories of Fall 2015.

Fall 2015 AfriVentures Registration Has Begun!

14 Aug

Fall 2015 AfriVentures

Join Us For An Online Interactive AfriVenture This Fall!

Welcome Back All the Returning Afronaut Baobab Star Seeds and Herus!

 & Welcome all New Students!

We are excited to begin a whole new year of innovative African Centered programming.

What’s New?

Greater Time Flexibility:

Last year we had several requests to hold our classes at alternative times for families that had children in school and were looking for African centered extra-schooling or afterschool activities, or for those that could not make the morning classes.  It worked so well that we are going to do it again this year! We are offering 2 sessions each of several of our online AfriVentures – morning and afternoon – so find a time that will work best for you wherever you are in the world.  If the available times do not work for your time zone please email us at and we will do what we can to accommodate you at a more convenient time for you. We want every child wherever they are in the world to have access to a great African History program.  Let’s make it work!

NEW! AfriVentures!

We are excited to present 2 NEW online AfriVentures – Disovering The Ancient Nile Vally Part 2 and African Centered Science- Introduction to Electricity 

Curriculum Map:

We have created a Curriculum Map where you can see how MLL is shaping up for future courses.


Great News! The Harambee Connection Network has created a program called the Harambee Connection Network Scholarship that provides some scholarships specifically  for anyone interested in participating in online African Centered classes such as ours and those provided by other esteemed online educators.  If you are interested in applying for a Harambee Connection Network Scholarship click on this link:!hc-network-scholarship/c7aq

We look forward to a season of AfriVenturing – Learning, Exploring, Time Traveling and Adventuring!

26 Jul

It was such an honor to spend the afternoon with such a wonderful group of AfriVenturers learning and talking about the stories of black people who have lived, fought, died, loved, struggled, survived and thrived along the banks of the Anacostia River in Washington DC.

Wade In The Water: The Story of Black Lives On The Anacostia was not just a tribute to the black lives on the Anacostia River but also to the earth itself – our home, to the Native Americans who were here before us all and to the River who almost lost her life too.  We remembered it all.

Our lives in DC have grown out of their lives.

Thanks again AfriVenturers and I hope we can do it all again in the near future!
