The African History of Sport

August 7, 2020 - 19:00 - 21:00

On Friday 7 August 2020, Black History Studies will present ‘The African History of Sport’

In this webinar, Black History Studies will reveal the hidden history of Africa’s contribution to World Sport and Games. This rich history is under researched and virtually ignored compared to Greek/Classical history of sport; but is fundamentally significant, since nearly all of today’s blue ribbon sport originated in Nile Valley Civilisations. This informative and inspirational presentation will take you on a journey to Africa, 3000 – 5000 years ago, to uncover the origins of sport, a little of which you may have heard about; but most of which is unknown.  In this journey, we are going to connect ancient and modern sport heritage.

THIS EVENT IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!

This webinar will take place on Friday 7th August 2020 at 19:00 GMT.

Location: This is an ONLINE WEBINAR via Zoom. The Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
