How can African History tutoring help you?
Studying the rich and ancient history of Africa presents any student with numerous challenges. African history encompasses a history that spans for millennia and attempts to describe an entire continent and the many distinct cultures, kingdoms, and civilizations that it gave rise to. Thus, the breadth of the subject can make it seem extremely overwhelming. While African history classes may narrow their focus to particular eras, cultures, or regions, more challenges arise from the interconnectedness and interactions between African regions, as well as the complex relationships with European cultures.
The paucity of written documentation of much of ancient African history means one may need to approach it using methods very different from the text-based studies used to address the histories of other regions, cultures, or eras. You may be expected to piece together early African history from sources as various as art, cultural traditions, transcribed oral stories, architecture, archeological findings, and other historical elements that form a part of a greater picture of a society at a given time. Additionally, the way in which Africa's cultural landscape was altered by the slave trade, the way in which it was divided up, colonized, and eventually decolonized by European countries, and its later political instability all can present students with unpleasant aspects of history that are difficult to discuss or come to terms with.
