Description

Class Experience

Upon completion of the course, the students will:
• Gain an appreciation of the richness, diversity, and contributions of African American culture to national and international life and the world.
• Reaffirm the fact that civilization in the United States is not the result of the work and energy of one people, but is the result of the contributions of African Americans and many other groups.
• Develop knowledge of important people, events, and ideas that have played a key role in shaping the history and culture of African Americans, and the history and culture of the United States.
There are connecting threads present throughout the course. These threads are reflective of major aspects of, and influences on African American life. Some of the major themes to be developed throughout the course will include the:
• Enduring presence of Africanisms – those patterns of life which emanated from Africa – and their impact on African American life in the United States.
• Impact of racism and colonialism – individual and institutional – on Africans and African Americans.
• Origins and development of slavery and its negative impact on Africa and the United States..
• Development of African American nationalism as a result of the segregated nature of American society.
• Participation of African Americans in each of the nation’s wars and conflicts.
• Importance of the African American church and other religious components as forces for social change and continuity.
• Significant and continuous role of women in the African American experience and in the struggle for liberation.
• Failure of government – federal, state, and local – to support existing laws and demands of African Americans that would provide equality.
• Presence of an Afrocentric perspective as an alternative to the Eurocentric viewpoint that has dominated American life and culture.
This may be a sensitive topic to families who are used to the Eurocentric history perspective. 
I am certified in the following:
School Counseling K-12
Special Education K-12
Elementary Education K-6
and was required to take classes on cultural competence, diversity, inclusion, and African American History while receiving my Master's so that I could teach students of marginalized groups. 

I have a degree connected to the topic  I am teaching and additional training/education related to the topic. (My Masters's is in Guidance & Counseling with classes to include cultural competence, diversity, inclusion, and African American History from a Decolonized Perspective.)


I am also an activist who assists with protesting against racial injustices, I have taught this curriculum with over 600 students on Outschool, and have experienced racism in my own life. 

There will be optional homework each day to include
Readings 
Hands-on projects 
Videos 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed based on class and homework participation. No grade will be given for this class unless requested by the family.
3 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The topic of colonization and enslavement will be discussed.  The brutality and violence of it may be hard for some students to process.
