In this 8 week Flex Class for 10 to 15 year olds, students will learn about black history beginning with Ancient African kingdoms and societies.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
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 a 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 Eurocentric history perspective.
