A History of African Civilizations revised 2nd edition is a book for book the general public and the classroom, based on the original primary research of Prof. Ampim, and it is complete with lesson plans and unit resources. This book follows the African American Studies 210 (History 110) course outline at Contra Costa College in San Pablo, California, and it focuses on the first human societies and advanced African civilizations at the apex of Africa’s contributions to humanity. It is largely a survey of African civilizations over the past five millennia.
This course, taught exclusively by Ampim, is one of the few in the U.S. that examines ancient African civilizations without dealing with the modern derailment of Africa, when it descended into slavery and colonialism several centuries ago.
