This five week course addresses the history of the transatlantic enslavement of Africans. We ask: What impact did transatlantic enslavement have on three continents? What impact did the Slave Trade have on Africans? What impact did it have on the Native Americans? What impact did it have on Europeans? What was Black History during this period? What was Africa like before and after this experience? Who was primarily responsible for the Slave Trade? Finally, we ask: Who was responsible for ending mass enslavement?
All of the classes are highly visual two hour PowerPoint presentations.

Here are some comments from evaluations forms completed by past students:
"Excellent. I came into an environment that was relaxing and comfortable which enabled me to learn and gain knowledge"
"Black History Studies opened my eyes where before they had been shut. Many things discussed put a completely new light on the history I had been taught in school and put into context with the 'European' version I had been exposed to."
