Overview

Africa’s cultural and historical influence

Travel/Study heads to England for the latest installment of the popular series examining the African Diaspora’s influence on world history. London was selected for its ties to both African American history and its own African and Caribbean culture.

Highlights of this journey include a cruise on the Thames, a visit to the National Gallery for an examination of African presence in European art, and a look at Black history in Trafalgar Square itself. We’ll learn how notable African Americans such as Frederick Douglass and Phillis Wheatley influenced London, and compare and contrast the U.S. fight for legal and social equality with the lesser known Black British Civil Rights movement.
