AFRICAN CONTINENT Continuing Education Class for Older Adults

Spring 2021 Schedule / Contemporary Issues / AFRICAN CONTINENT

Coordinators: Ann Goerdt, Bob Reiss, Bob Gottfried

It is important to learn about a continent that is not well known in the U.S. African history is not taught in schools, so we have little basis on which to build knowledge and understanding of the countries that we occasionally hear about in the news. This course will address questions such as: How developed are the countries of Africa? Which countries are most active in the world economy? What interest does the U.S. have in African countries? What role is China playing in Africa? How are countries alike, and different, from north to south, east to west?
