This paper is a research project on the difference between the East African slave trade and that of the West African Slave trade. The slave trade that took place across the Indian Ocean is to a certain extent a misnomer, because it tends to combine two historically and geographically different and distinct trades; the only thing they shared was that of the body of water they crossed.

Extractions: CHAPTER 2: SOCIAL CONTEXT OF AFRICAN THEOLOGY 1: Socio-Historical Survey Ancient Egypt developed the first of the great civilizations of world history. Egypt had already a long and illustrious history by the time ancient Greece reached its apex, and it is well established that Greek thinkers acknowledged their debt to ancient Egypt. Much has been written on Egypt and it need not be repeated here, except perhaps to mention that much current African and African-American scholarship is currently in the process of reappropriating Egypt as a specifically African civilization, in which the Cushites and black peoples of southern Egypt played a major role. The "Afrocentric Hypothesis", as advanced by Cheik Anta Diop and his more recent African-American exponent, Molefi Asante, states that Egypt was the source of all the significant cultural ideas of the civilizations which followed it, Persia, Greece, Rome, etc., and that all of these ideas came from an African source in Egypt and the southern Nile region (see Diop 1954, 1974 and Asante 1987). While some of the more extreme ideas of the "Afrocentrists" remain controversial in historical scholarship, they are bringing the role of black Africa in the ancient world out of obscurity into the realm of debate, which in itself advances the achievement of Africans and has shed light on the manner in which Euroamerican scholarship has systematically denied and suppressed information about Africa's past greatness, a greatness which included the empires of Egypt, Nubia, Ethiopia, Mali, Songhay, Timbuctoo, and Zimbabwe.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is a study in the nature of human society through its cultural setting. The humanities will be the medium through which the diverse societies of sub-Saharan Africa will be explored in their similar approaches to uses of the environment; oral tradition; religion; myths and legends; visual arts; music; dance; and theatre which effect social policies and an individual culture's vision of its own future. COURSE GOAL: This is an interdisciplinary course which introduces and discusses with some depth a specified cultural setting. Like the more generalized humanities course, the topics covered are those broad-based aspects of culture and the arts that help the students improve their skills in thinking, understanding, and communicating aesthetic and ethical judgments about the world. The student will be able to illustrate the cultural products that individual societies in this part of the world have regarded as aesthetically pleasing and the ways in which they were produced. III.

The site is maintained by Wataru Ebihara of the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center in Los Angeles.
Extractions: They have also hunted it for its abundant meat, strong hide, hair, bone, and precious tusks. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the elephant has nourished the African imagination. Its image is creatively transformed in African art and literature. The rich and enduring presence of the elephant in African art reflects as much about human society as about the animal itself. When elephant steps on trap, no more trap. The image of the elephant appears on some of the most important ritual objects used in ancestor veneration, masquerades, and rites of passage. Yet it also adorns humble domestic objects (combs, food bowls, heddle pulleys) and commercial products (beer, detergent, and postage stamps). Sometimes the elephant is depicted in isolation, other times it is part of a complex scene.

Readings include: The Odyssey, Oedipus the King, Knights and excerpts from the historical writings of Herodotus, Thucydides, Livy, Plutarch, and Tacitus. Medieval World History Tenth-graders study the Middle Ages (roughly C.E. 500-1500) in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. These were centuries during which many peoples expanded their knowledge of the world. The Islamic and Chinese societies, in particular, traveled freely across the Eastern Hemisphere at this time. Students gain an understanding of the ways in which non-Western cultures contributed to the growth of world civilization. Emphasis is placed in this course on refining both research skills and analytical thinking. Texts include: Claster

He took up an interest in anthropology, in which he completed a BLitt two years later at the age of 26, also at Oxford. From 1967-69 he was lecturer at the department of sociology, University of Ghana. Upon his return to England in 1969, he accepted a post as assistant curator at the Museum of Archaeology ad Ethnology in Cambridge, which was the beginning of a career in museums. In 1974 he was appointed to his present post at the Museum of Mankind.

Extractions: Returning to Africa's Roots/Modernizing the Indigenous George B.N. Ayittey All Africa needs to do is to return to its roots and build on and modernize its own indigenous institutions. There is now a greater awareness of the need to reexamine Africa's own heritage. Return to traditional institutions will ensure not only peace but stability as well: In Mali each existing ethnic group is recognized for its distinct heritage. "Ethnicity cannot be manipulated in this society," said educator Lalla Ben Barkar. "The people may be from the north or the south, but in the end they realize they are one nation, and that is Mali" (The Washington Post, 24 March 1996, A28). Carl M. Peterson and Daniel T. Barkely offered a reason why Somalia imploded: The previous government [Siad Barre's] failed to incorporate the institutional aspects of Somalia's indigenous culture into a functioning national body. [Therefore] a stable, viable and fair political system must comprise the essential characteristics of Somalia's complex society. This means revitalizing indigenous institutions, restoring traditional powers and giving clans a legitimate outlet for political expression. (New African, June 1993, 20). E. F. Kolajo of Thoyandou, South Africa, concurred: "The Japanese, Chinese, and Indians still maintain their roots, and they are thriving as nations. Africa embraces foreign cultures at the expense of its own, and this is why nothing seems to work for us" (New African, February 1995, 4). In fact, according to The Bangkok Post, "Japan's postwar success has demonstrated that modernization does not mean Westernization. Japan has modernized spectacularly, yet remains utterly different from the West. Economic success in Japan has nothing to do with individualism. It is the fruit of sheer discipline the ability to work in groups and to conform" (cited by The Washington Times, 9 November 1996, A8).
