    THE GLOBAL AFRICAN PRESENCE:

    A NEW COURSE BY RUNOKO
    RASHIDI

    1. COURSE DESCRIPTION

    The Global African Presence, a new on-line course by
    Runoko Rashidi, focuses on Africans around the world
    both ancient and modern. It examines the African
    origins and evolution of humanity, the African
    presence in classical civilizations, and the present
    locations and conditions of African people. In this
    course we will be using the words African and Black
    interchangeably, as synonyms. This includes Africans
    as the first modern humans, the subsequent migrations
    and movements of African people out of Africa and the
    later involuntary scattering of African people around
    the world as the result of enslavement.

    2. SYLLABUS

    WEEK 1

    THE AFRICAN ORIGINS OF HUMANITY AND CIVILIZATION

    Our first class begins with a look at the African
    Origins of Humanity and Human Culture. And then we
    trace the evolution of classical civilization in
    Africa, beginning in Central Africa, and examine Nile
    Valley Civilization, highlighting KMT (Ancient
    Egypt)--the world's greatest ancient nation.

    WEEK 2

    CLASSICAL AFRICAN CIVILIZATIONS AND THE BEGINNING OF
    THE DISPERSAL

    We look briefly at other African civilizations
    including Carthage, Axum, and the great West African
    civilizations. Then we plant the seeds for the
    beginnings of our global African travel excursion.

    WEEK 3

    THE AFRICAN PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND SOUTH ASIA

    In week three of our course we look at the African
    presence in such places as the Arabian Peninsula,
    Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Turkey,
    Pakistan and India--including an examination of the
    Dalits--India's Black Untouchables.

    WEEK 4

    AFRICANS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA, EAST ASIA, AUSTRALIA AND
    THE PACIFIC ISLANDS

    Here we cover a vast area that includes the peopling
    and civilizations of the Philippines, Cambodia,
    Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, and China. Then we journey
    into the Dreamtime with the Aboriginal Australians and
    sail the islands of the Pacific in search of the
    African presence.

    WEEK 5

    THE AFRICAN PRESENCE IN EUROPE

    In this class we look at African people as the first
    people of Europe before we deal with African presence
    in Greek mythology, African popes and caesars and
    martyrs, Black Madonnas and African Saints, the mighty
    Moors, and great African intellectuals.

    WEEK 6

    THE AFRICAN PRESENCE IN THE AMERICAS AND AN OVERVIEW

    In our final class we look at the African peopling of
    the Americas, the trans-Atlantic slave trade and
    African resistance. We look at Africans throughout
    the Americas today and have a final summation of what
    we have covered.

    The textual basis of each class will be Dr. Rashidi's
    award winning Global African Presence Web Site.
    Supplemental texts are the Ivan Van Sertima Journal of
    African Civilizations anthologies.
