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.

We will resume our African World History courses Saturday, July 10th at 11:00AM with the course, "What History Class Left Out Part 1- African History 10,000BCE- 711CE".

This eight-week overview course covers the myths and facts regarding African history from the begins of human civilization until the beginnings of the 8th Century Common Era. We will cover the rise of early man, the growth of ancient civilizations, and various themes such as religion, politics, economics, and social relations. All reading materials will be provided, and interactive lectures will be held every Saturday.
