This course lays the foundation for understanding why and under what circumstances African people celebrate. In other words, there will be an investigation of the African worldview that informs the celebration decisions in the black world. The great cultural festivals of Africa and the diaspora will be fully explored using multimedia. Students can anticipate learning about Akwasidae Festival in Ghana, Osun Festival in Nigeria, the Carnival in Brazil, and much more.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
