BLACK HISTORY 4 YOUNG PEOPLE:
The African Influence of the Olmec Civilizations and The History of Black People in the Americas
Location: Kaos Network: 3333 W. 43rd Place, Los Angeles, CA 90008 (Largest cross streets: Crenshaw and Vernon. Class is two blocks east of Crenshaw on 43rd at Leimert Blvd.) TIME: 10:00am – Noon (Ages 12-18 – Give or take)
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.
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.
