The Black Past – Gods & Pharaohs: The Nile Valley Kingdoms

Mon, 5 October 2020

In this 9-part series, we explore the stories of Black people throughout time across the globe, placing Africa at the centre of human life.

We will travel across the civilisations of precolonial Africa, taking a look at how societies were run, what people did on a daily basis, the educational, mathematical & scientific advancements of the times, as well as examining the incredible ancient monuments. We will also delve into the buried history of Black resistance to Western imperialism, from the dawn of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade to the epoch of colonisation.

The Nile Valley is home to Africa’s most famous civilisation: Kemet (Ancient Egypt). However, the history of this region extends back some 12,000 years! This week we will be exploring the civilisations of Ta-Seti, Kemet and Kush, highlighting the magnificent achievements of each while dispelling popular myths about the “non-African origin” of Ancient Egypt.

This event is for all ages and anyone looking to learn more about Black history outside of the Civil Rights Era.
