African Diaspora


The African Diaspora:
Unearthing the Universal Story

Where does the universal human story and difference meet? What have you been taught about people that are different than you? What commonalities do we share? What's your story?

In this class, we will investigate these questions by learning about African Diasporic History. We will look to the original birth place of human kind, to explore questions of economics, race, gender, and difference. 

Come ready to learn about Africa's ancient kingdoms and the ways people of African origins have dispersed around the world, creating and innovating wherever they are. Most importantly, come ready to learn about your own personal connections and ideas.
