ARISE – African History, Past to Present
August 28 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
History plays a huge role in how we identify ourselves. “In the end, who are you if you don’t know anything about where you come from, about your origins, your family, your language, your own culture.” To combat the scarcity of African history in the US Educational system, Siren – Protectors of the Rainforest, Inc. along with the Bedford Stuyvesant Residents Association will be presenting a one hour weekly class to acquaint the residents of Brooklyn with Africa, its people, its history, its culture and its present day economy.
Join us at the African Burial Ground Monument for our grand opening ceremony. Music and Food will be provided as well as the opportunity to tour the museum.
This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
