Under Kemet cosmology, Ma'at is designed to avert chaos (Isfet) and maintain truth (Ma'at). The symbol for truth, justice, balance, and order is the Goddess Ma'at. The iconography for Ma'at in the hieroglyphs depicts the single ostrich feather (Shu), worn atop Goddess Ma'at’s head. - Vanessa Cross

"150 Years Later: Abolition in the 21st Century" with Angela Y. Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies (UCLA-Santa Cruz)
About Angela Y. Davis:
Through activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world. Her work as an educator -- both at the university level and in the larger public sphere -- has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. Having helped to popularize the notion of a "prison industrial complex," she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement. This lecture was presented in collaboration with the McMaster Seminar on Higher Education (http://highered.mcmaster.ca) with the generous support of McMaster University's Office of the President, the Office of the Vice President (Research & International Affairs), the McMaster Centre for Scholarship in the Public Interest, Mac10 Young Alumni network, the Public Intellectuals Project, OPIRG McMaster, Bryan Prince Bookseller and the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion. Research and related activities for this event were supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
In June many African American's celebrate Juneteenth, the celebration of the last state in the union to receive word that slavery ended in 1865. Community organizer Michael Harris hosted a Juneteenth celebration at Negro Bar, a California State Park located within the city of Folsom in the county of Sacramento. Harris said he picked this location to celebrate the history of the old mining site and contributions African American's played during the gold rush area. "Together, we celebrate Juneteenth as we continue to identify, document, preserve and share the authentic contributions by people of African ancestry 1840-1875 along the American River Parkway. The Negro Bar Historic State Park is poised to tell the story of people of African Ancestry's significant contributions along the American River Parkway, part of an ongoing effort to expand inclusion and create a California African American Heritage Commission. Our 2017 Folsom Juneteenth, honors the amazing contributions and sacrifice by US Colored Troops during the US Civil War and local unknown "hidden figures" in our ongoing journey towards freedom," said Harris.
On Jan. 26, 2021, President Joe Biden signed four executive orders designed to address racial equity in the United States. With one particular action Biden hopes to right the historical wrongs Black folks have faced when it comes to housing and home ownership in this country. Per a White House statement, “He will direct the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to take steps necessary to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality for generations.” And that’s why the story of what housing and other living conditions look like for many Black Americans is pretty bleak. It’s by design. READ MORE: https://www.theroot.com/racial-segreg...

Start your free trial TODAY so you can watch "The Story of Egypy" about the history of the Nile civilizations, and the rest of MagellanTV’s documentary collection: https://www.magellantv.com/series/the... In this Units of History documentary we explore the story of the Nubian Archers - Longbowmen of Africa. The episode begins with an introduction to the lands of the Nile, its geography, and the entwined development of both Egypt and Nubia. In this context it appears that the Nubian Archers existed from the very start as skilled hunters in southern civilization. Over time they would develop such a reputation that the ancient Egyptians would call the area of ancient Nubia, Tah-Seti, the Land of the Bow. Both the Egyptian Army and the Nubian Army would clash for centuries along the Nile. Such was the threat from Nubia that the Pharaohs began to fortify the region of the first cataract with a series of Egyptian Fortifications like the Buhen Fortress. Yet even still the Nubian Archers could not be stopped and their armies are said to have regularly managed to storm these bastions. The Egyptians recognized the military prowess of the Nubian Archers and quickly hired them as mercenaries in their own armies. This was a trend that would continue with later Empires that interacted with the Lands of Nubia. We talk specifically about what the equipment of these Nubian archers, how they were trained, how they were organized, and how they fought in battle. Finally the documentary concludes with an overview of their service history that would span hundreds of years through the Kingdom of Kerma, the Kingdom of Napata, and the Kingdom of Meroe. Stay tuned for more Units of History episodes and let us know what units you would like to see covered next! I'm excited to also cover more of the history of Nubia and African history in general! For now you can check out our previous episodes on Ancient Egypt and the Roman Invasion of Nubia.

This edition of Mr. Zoller's Social Studies Podcasts provides an introduction to African geography.
Below are parts two, three, and four of the presentation.
KNOW YOUR AFRICAN STATES WILL BE LECTURES ABOUT THE CONTINENT'S GEOGRAPHTY.
Africa is the world's second-largest and second-most populous continent, after Asia in both cases. At about 30.3 million km2 (11.7 million square miles) including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of Earth's total surface area and 20% of its land area. With 1.3 billion people as of 2018, it accounts for about 16% of the world's human population. Africa's population is the youngest amongst all the continents; the median age in 2012 was 19.7, when the worldwide median age was 30.4. Despite a wide range of natural resources, Africa is the least wealthy continent per capita, in part due to geographic impediments, legacies of European colonization in Africa and the Cold War, predatory/neo-colonialistic activities by Western nations and China, and undemocratic rule and deleterious policies. Despite this low concentration of wealth, recent economic expansion and the large and young population make Africa an important economic market in the broader global context. (Source: Wikipedia)
