SUMMER SESSION

"The Intersection of African History and STEAM"*

June 26 - July 31, 2020

*Private Class Recording

"A "must have" children's curriculum that teaches about Ancient Egypt. The book includes contributions from Tony Browder.  A must have for teachers, homeschoolers as

well as essential for your personal library."

"I used this book and read it from cover to cover with the children.  I asked the principal to purchase a class set."

My World Literature Course

When I returned from ASALH, I immediately returned to the study and teaching of Ancient Kemet Civilization, using your book to supplement what I had already taught (the textbook had nothing on the contributions of Ancient Kemet to world civilization, so I turned to my own personal library and to your great resource). It was great meeting you.
