Our African & Caribbean studies classes take place every Saturday from our learning centre at 17 Claremont, Bradford. The classes are designed to stimulate learning around the experiences both past and present of African and Caribbean people in the UK, the USA and the diaspora.
Working in partnership with Per Ankh Community Enterprise (PACE), the African & Caribbean studies course has been enjoyed by close to 300 people since we started in 2007. Over 250 people have also enjoyed our Saturday evening lectures which are taught by Robin Walker (Author & Historian) and hundreds more have benefited from other courses that have been organised by us in the community.
The Saturday classes are taught in six week blocks and encompass the following modules:
- African & Caribbean History (Part 1)
- Political Studies in the UK, Africa and the Caribbean
- Black Sociology and Psychology
- African & Caribbean History (Part 2)
- African contributions to Religion
- African & Caribbean contributions to Science, Technology and Production
Priority is given to young adults aged 16-25 however the course is attended by people of all ages from 16 years upwards, our oldest learner has been 82 years old. Learning takes place in a relaxed environment and all students are equipped with course materials every week. A full range of refreshments are available at every session.
The African & Caribbean Studies course has been successful at fostering a sense of pride in one’s own culture and gives learners the tools needed to seriously debate the issues related to African & Caribbean people in the UK today.
