I see a lot of posts asking people to learn. But what I realized is that I needed to learn more about my own history as well. So I began my journey to know more about my heritage. I ordered a few books and then a friend told me about universities that offer free online courses. I thought- wow! I need to look into that. Here’s info about the course I am currently taking. Will you join me on this journey to learn about African American history?
So I decided to start by taking a FREE online African American History course at Yale College.
Yep, you read it right! Yale offers a FREE Open African American History Course. A good friend told me about the course when she found out that I was interested in learning more about my history.
I googled it and here is what I found….
African American History: From Emancipation to the Present
Course Number: AFAM 162
Course Name: African American History: From Emancipation to Present
About the Course: To examine the African American experience in the United States from 1863 to the present (2010).

Self Study Course
So basically the course is self study (DIY). You download the materials/links/lectures, read and do the work at your own pace. Talk about valuable information. I am so ready!
Stay tuned! This is about to get good! I will be randomly sharing my full experience here and on social media! I can’t wait. I have also ordered a few books that I will share with you as well.
So guys….am I the only one who has been living under a rock and had no idea that Yale offered FREE online African American History Courses? Inquiring minds would love to know!
Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember to Always…
