Dr. Kwaku with an Olmec Head. He calls it “Brothers.”

Topic #1:
This Saturday we will cover the Americas like nothing students have ever seen. We will begin with a graphic lecture by Dr. Ivan Van Sertima on the Olmec civilization, the first civilization in the Americas.
Topic #2:
Next, Dr. Kwaku will deliver a very powerful lecture on the earliest American civilizations, as well as cover what people of Afrikan descent have created and accomplished in early and present day America. Our students will not be exposed to this information in their educational training, so they will be ahead of the game in American history.
