Before Slavery: Africa’s Discovery of America

February 26 @ 18:30 - 20:00


February is Black History Month in the U.S.A. Do you ever wonder when the story of Africans in the Americas actually really begin? Was it in 1619, with the landing of a few enslaved & trafficked Africans, or did Africans voyage to the Americas hundreds of years prior? What evidence is there that Africans had previously set foot on American soil way before the first slave ship from Africa docked?


This one-of-a-kind online masterclass will answer all these critical questions.


Join African Union member,  renowned historian, 28-year academic, and author of 18 black history books, Robin Walker as he guides us through the true history of Africa’s connection with the Americas before the slave trade.


This lecture is delivered in partnership with A Tribe Called Progress.
