•What is Socio-Cultural Trauma? 

•Cultural trauma has been described through historical events such as the result of conditions forced upon African Americans during slavery and the decades of discrimination and oppression that followed (DeGruy-Leary, 2005). 
•The implication is that cultural trauma, unlike physical or emotional trauma, represents a dramatic loss of identity and meaning that causes damage to the collective group’s social fabric (Eyerman, 2001) .

 

•How does one learn personal, social, cultural, ethnic, and collective identity? The socialization practices used to instill these aspects of self-worth may not be commonly shared by the parents or caregivers. Without intervention or “different” information, most parent can only raise their children from the same understanding that they, themselves were reared (Nyame, 2016).

“History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is also a compass that people use to find themselves on the map of human geography… The most important role that history plays is that it has the function of telling a people where they still must go and what they still must be.”

John H. Clarke

Our curriculum starts with theories on the origins of the Universe, and move through the evolution of the “living planet” called earth then chronicles the development of early man in prehistoric time. We document the birth of Modern man in Africa and highlight the history of Africa’s children from ancient times to the present. Join us as student or scholar, contribute too, and help critique our research.

The African World History class provides an ongoing experience of the contributions, achievements, Africans and African-Americans have made throughout history. The class uses the historical experiences of African peoples as insight to highlight the cultural values we share. It enables participants to experience a people rooted in great culture and tradition.

The curriculum taught in these classes will provide increased exposure to the positive contributions that Africans and African-Americans have made throughout history. The purpose of this cultural esteem curriculum is to facilitate the development of cultural awareness, critical thinking, and positive esteem by focusing on documenting and discussing aspects of Ourstory, culture, and socialization.
