African History Project - Black Man Writing (4) copy Department of
African History
Study the people and events of the continent

We are committed to helping our students dive into the stories of the continent and its people, to explore the lives and events that have shaped modern African consciousness.

Short Courses

Our short courses are 6-week or 12-week courses designed to introduce students to key topics in Black history. Intellectually rigorous, courses combine independent student and live seminars to give participants a solid grounding in the history and ideas of Africa and her diaspora.


Our workshops are half-day or one-day training sessions delivered online via live seminars. Skills-focused, we keep class sizes small enough to facilitate discussion and allow participants to contribute their thoughts on the readings and the ideas being considered.
