African Archeology - African History

If we're going to do Black History Month, we need to go back to where we started and get it right. The following images include quite a few that I've never seen before in spite of the fact that I've been around for well over a half a century. I still remember being ashamed of the the images of Africa and Africans that were portrayed in the American media and in the schools at that time. It's no wonder I couldn't stand history classes. Check out the images and info in these videos, take notes and do further research. If you are a teacher, include this material in your lesson plans. If you are working with young people in our communities, find a way to get them interested in studying our true history. Let's it right this time around.
