I have a BA in both History and Philosophy and an MSc in Psychology. I have also tutored students in all three. I am African, and remain deeply embedded in the continent, with many family and friends all across it, allowing me to have a good current understanding on Africa. Racism is a topic we will discuss, especially around the topic of the colonization on Africa. This is an excellent resource for dealing with such a topic. https://www.redcross.org.uk/get-involved/teaching-resources/talking-with-children-and-young-people-about-race-and-racism. The topic of racism will be handled gently , with time for students to discuss how they feel on the matter.
Towards the end of the course, learners will be asked to write a short piece on what they have learnt from the course, and how they now view Africa.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- War, Colonization and Slavery are a part of the history of Africa and will be discussed. - The concept of race, both in the past and in the future will be addressed, with time for students to share their thoughts and perspectives on the matter.
