California State University Dominguez Hills is offering several free courses in recognization of Black History Month beginning today from 1:30-3:30 p.m. The program will feature faculty experts in the area of African and African-American studies; a field trip on Feb. 12 to the California African American Museum (CAAM) and a movie with an all African American cast. The presentation features the lecture: “Africa in the 21st Century” focusing on the Ancient Nubian Scriptures: The Royal Writings of the Napatan and Meroitic Pharaohs.
The first lecture is “Africa in the 21st Century: Initiatives, Challenges, and Opportunities” and features Munashe Furusa, Ph.D., addressing initiatives, challenges and opportunities for Africa's development in the 21st century. This remains an urgent topic considering that this century seems to be unfolding, for many African countries, the same way the previous centuries have—complex, uncertain, and unpromising. Hence, there is need to theoretically tackle the issue of Africa's future in this new century. In particular, Dr. Furusa will discuss the extent to which Africa is meeting challenges of developing its individual countries and is taking advantage of opportunities that the continent offers to successfully become a “continent of science and development.”
Furusa is Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities. Class is in the Extended Education Building, EE - 1218. Course is NLLL 155 Section 05, Course No. 2285.
