Teaching and Propagating African and Diaspora History and Culture
The Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilisation, in collaboration with the Pan-African Strategic and Policy Research Group, hosted an international colloquium in Brazil in 2008 and a follow up in 2009. The 2009 colloquium, organised by the two groups together with the Special Secretariat for the Promotion of Policies of Racial Equality under the Presidency of Brazil, brought together scholars, teachers, policy makers to further consider the issues of the teaching of African history and culture to the diaspora, and the teaching of diaspora history and culture to Africa. Flowing from the colloquium, the papers in this volume are based on the sub-themes: Historicising Africa and the Diaspora; African Values, Ethics and Spirituality; Politics of Teaching African and Diaspora History; Curriculum Development and Implementation; Challenges and Prospects of Developmental Relationships between Africa and the Diaspora; and Africa and Diaspora Music, Drama and Theatre. Thirty four papers are in English, and fourteen papers in Portuguese.
