STARTING NOVEMBER 4 AT 9:00 PM US EST!
On November 4, 2016 Runoko Rashidi begins his new Friday evening classes. The theme is Museum Artifacts and African Communities. You could also call it Friday evenings with Runoko Rashidi. Because that is what it amounts to–Friday evening cyber journey tours to the African collections in the major museums followed by visits to African communities in all of the major regions of the Motherland with none other than Runoko Rashidi himself–historian, writer, anthropologist and tour leader. And all of the funds collected from the class are directed towards more travel, more research and the presentation of the finding to the African world.
There will be a minimum of twelve individual sessions, each lasting about two to 2.5. hours. The classes are spread out over a period of months. The live sessions begin on Friday evenings at 9:00 PM United States Eastern Standard times. If you cannot participate live you are free to review the course instruction, the questions and answers and Runoko’s best, original photographs.
During the intervals between the actual classes supplemental information is posted to the page. It is a not to be missed opportunity to have a direct one on one interaction with Runoko and also to help facilitate the ongoing research that he is doing. It is a unique opportunity both to learn and to say thank you; to absorb the richness of African history and culture while at the same time giving back. You need no special equipment. You simply need log onto the special Facebook page and follow along. And the course tuition is only $50.00 per household for the entire course. Just pay through Paypal to Runoko@hotmail.com. Acknowledgement of payment will be made immediately.
The class assignment is to compile a book for children on The History of Africa: People and Civilizations. What could be better? What could be more worthy?
The individual sessions are as follows:
A Cyber Journey through the African Collections in the British Museum
A Cyber Journey through the African Collections in the Museums of Germany
