African History Classes

Led by Dr. Clyde Ledbetter, our African History Courses cover various topics and historical periods related to African history. From Snitches and Sellouts to Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., there's a whole world of history to explore.

March is Black Future Month. It is a time for African/Afro-descendant/Black Communities to have open discussions geared toward presenting ideas on what we can do moving forward to progress development locally and internationally.

Register in advance for these meetings:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

These first three meetings are designated for Africans and Afro-descendants only and it is respectfully asked that this registration link only be shared with those in that community.

The link for the fourth week in March that has been set aside for non-African and Afro-descendant allies to join will be sent out at a later time.
