IN THIS WEEK’S CLASS:

Topic One: Intra Color Discrimination (That Dark skinned-Light skinned thing!)


We will investigate how slavery was used to divide people of Afrikan descent on the basis of a dark skin or light skin complexion, and how Intra Color Discrimination is still being practiced today. This is one of the worst tragedies affecting our community, but our understanding of the history will not allow it to continue.

Topic Two:
The Afrikan Origin of Humanity

We will also look at the lifestyle and culture of the Baka People, the descendants of the first human beings who occupied the world before later humans evolved. The entire human race came from these small Afrikans.
