Africa and the African Diaspora: Past and Present

March 25, 2021 at 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM


K-12 and Community College Virtual Program

This virtual program introduces educators to the concept of the African diaspora and the experiences of African diaspora communities in the United States. According to the African Union, the African Diaspora is composed of “people of African origin living outside of the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality, and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.” Educators will gain knowledge of the African diaspora, learn about the interconnectedness of Africa with other nations, including the United States, and receive resources that underscore connections, similarities and differences among African diaspora communities. This program is designed for K-12 and community college educators of all disciplines.

Program Goals:

– Identify a relevant issue that affects African diaspora communities and how they could be incorporated across various academic disciplines

– Learn something new about the experiences of African diaspora communities in the United States

– Gain insights and resources on the connections, similarities and differences among diaspora communities

This program is eligible to PEACOCK SCHOLARSHIP recipients.
