Scholars will be introduced to an interactive Africana Studies course in which they learn about Africa’s past, present, and future. They will learn about the African origins of humanity. They learn about the ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and geographic diversity of the continent of Africa while becoming familiarized with the great ancient kingdoms and their leaders. Scholars will engage in active classroom activities such as age-appropriate games and hands-on projects. Scholars will learn to substantiate their own perspectives and theories of Africa’s future as they explore concepts of the Diaspora. Topics include positive social responses to issues affecting the African diaspora such as the Civil Rights, Black Power, Pan-African, Afrofuturism movements, and more. Scholars will also engage in guest-facilitated workshops and cultural trips.
