AFRICANS IN THE AMERICAS FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI
This highly visual presentation looks at Black people as the first settlers of the Americas, the role of African people in classical American civilizations, the resistance of Africans in the Americas to enslavement, the places in the Americas where African people are today (Bolivia, Brazil, Honduras, Peru, etc.), and photos from Runoko's visit to Haiti five weeks before the massive earthquake.
Runoko Rashidi is a historian, research specialist, writer, world traveler, and public lecturer focusing on the African foundations of world civilizations. He is particularly drawn to the African presence in Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands, and has coordinated numerous historic educational group tours worldwide.
