"Essential Afrikan History" Workshop

Published Jimmy - Tue, 09/13/2011 - 2:21pm

 

This will be the first in a monthly series of workshops facilitated by long-time Gainesville community organizer Kali Blount.

Mainstream Western history education is stripped of many histories that do not comport with the Greco-Roman model for the origin of civilization.  One of the earliest is that of Afrikan origins of civilization.  These include the fathers of many disciplines now attributed to Greeks: Imhotep instead of Hippocrates, Pythagoras' true Nile Valley teachers, etc.  And indeed, the history of the United States, wherein the contributions of people of Afrikan descent were essential to the existence of the country we see today.
