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.
This overview course is designed to introduce students to the role of African women as defenders of African People from various forms of oppression. We will cover various historical periods from ancient times to the early 20th century and look for the commonalities and differences in the strategies of female leaders as they confront internal and external challenges.
