Register Now for this unique and exciting workshop!!! THE GLOBAL AFRICAN
PRESENCE: A NEW COURSE BY RUNOKO RASHIDI COURSE DESCRIPTION The
African Presence in Early Asia and Early Europe, a new online workshop by Runoko
Rashidi, focuses on African people around parts of the world where their presence
is significant but little know. It examines the African origins and evolution of
humanity, the African presence in classical civilizations, and Africans and people of
African descent who distinguished themselves against all odds. In these
workshops we will be using the words African and Black interchangeably, as
This includes Africans as the first modern humans, the subsequent migrations and
movements of African people out of Africa and the later involuntary scattering of
African people around the world as the result of enslavement. In the workshop on
the African Presence in Early Asia we will look at African people as the Aboriginal
people of Asia. We will look at the African presence in classical Asian civilizations.
We will look at Black populations such as the Dravidians of India, the Khmers of
Cambodia, and the Agta of the Philippines.
In the workshop on Europe we will look at Africans as the first humans in Europe,
Africans in Greek mythology, Africans in the Roman World, the Moors, Black
Madonnas, Black Saints, Black Knights, and individual African men of distinction.
Each workshop will feature sixty of Runoko Rashidi's finest photographs.
Recommended readings are African Presence in Early Asia edited by Runoko
Rashidi and African Presence in Early Europe edited by Ivan Van Sertima.
