Explorations in Black and Africana Studies
African Elements explores various topics in Black, African American, and Africana Studies. While the focus will be on the historical, cultural, and socio-political legacy of the African presence in America since the Atlantic Slave Trade, the series will touch on the legacy of colonialism on the African continent as well as the African diaspora on a global scale.
African Elements is intended to provide online content for use in the classroom and to the general public. Closed captioning is available for all episodes. The video lessons are posted in as a playlist consisting of 4 videos segments that comprise the whole episode in order to provide maximum customizability. The playlist may be shared or embedded or users may mix and match segments into custom playlists to meet classroom needs. Episodes and segments are free to be shared and embedded on websites and blogs, but may not be redistributed for commercial use.
