Event Description

School has started, and many schools, including community colleges and universities are virtual. However, neither in-person or virtual lessons have done a good job teaching African & African American history, or the history of Black people throughout the diaspora. Therefore, historian and educator Jamon Jordan of Black Scroll Network History & Tours has started a monthly virtual class on African & American History. The class consists of 10 monthly lessons that will take us from the African origin of humanity to the election of Barack Obama, and how all of this history is connected. The first lecture is Wednesday, September 16th from 7-9pm. Every lecture after that is scheduled for the second Monday of the month from 7-9pm. Two days prior to the lecture, a Zoom link will be sent you via email. Please check the email you gave when you registered for the event. The first lecture will be recorded and if you miss it, you may have it sent to you. If a lecture is cancelled due to unforeseen reasons, it will be rescheduled for the following day, and you will receive a notice via email. If you cannot make the rescheduled lecture, you can request to receive a recorded lecture via email, or you can receive a refund. Refunds are only available if the lecture is cancelled or rescheduled.Refunds take about 10-14 days to process. All live lectures will conclude with a Q&A for 15-20 minutes.

About the event organizer

WHO WE ARErnThe Black Scroll Network, History u0026 Tours, L.L.C., came into being in 2013. After years of leading tours for free, the founder of the company saw the need for people to have a personal experience with the history of African Americans and Black people throughout the Diaspora. This is especially true in Detroit, MI, where the company was founded and is based. This city, which is about 85% African American, has a rich history, from enslaved Africans and Indigenous People to being a major station on the Underground Railroad which Black people used to escape enslavement, to a Black economic and residential center, known as Black Bottom u0026 Paradise Valley to numerous events, leaders and figures in history.rnWe offer tours in Detroit, other places in Michigan, and even historical sites throughout the United States. Please contact Jamon Jordan at 313-983-9216 or email him at to schedule a tour.rn
