DNA results help us find ourselves, but they don’t help us see ourselves in ancient, historical, or contemporary practices of Africa. This workshop will enable the attendees to uncover, recover, and discover information about their heritage through targeted searches on their habits and hobbies.
We do this through the creation of the Hobby Question and transform it into the Infinite Question. Both of these questions can be the launchpad for your research using various tools and databases online and in person.
Wonderful presentation!!! It really pushes you to explore the intentionality of why one participates in habits/hobbies. Very profound the discussion(s) this evening, A great deal to think about.Lydia B-P
Who is this workshop for?
- For Africans in the diaspora who have asked these questions:
- I know I’m African but I don’t know what that means.”
- “I’ve read a lot of Dr. Clarke, Dr. Ben, Dubois, Dr. Wilson, Garvey, Booker T, Blyden, Neale-Hurston, B. Wells, Dr. Ani,Dr. Cress-Welsing but getting actually to the continent is something I’m missing.”
- Where do I fit in between Ancient KMT/Egypt and now?
- For Africans who already know the answers to these questions, and want to give a framework to help their loved ones who ask these questions.
- For Africans who would appreciate a framework for helping themselves understand the activities they enjoy with additional “continental context.”
- For Africans who have taken DNA tests and want to see themselves in the tribes/ethnic groups they align with.
- Anyone else who’d like to learn about how they can find out more about themselves through looking at their favorite activities in a historical capacity.
