The webinar will be broadcast live from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, D.C. where we will have a live audience of over 140 high school students. Sponsored by USAID, the Discovery Channel Global Education Partnership, The Africa Society of the National Summit on Africa and Discovery Education, this unique online event is an extension of the ExploreAfricaToday.com initiative, which features the AfricaToday documentary series, and is part of the USAID-funded Teach Africa program.
The Teach Africa program showcases the cultures and histories of Africa and underscores the importance of its inclusion in American curricula. One-day Africa immersion forums for more than 3,300 students were held in Atlanta, GA, Houston, TX, and Los Angeles, CA, earlier this year. Teach Africa, launched by The Africa Society in 2002, has previously been implemented in Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, PA, San Francisco, CA, and Portland, OR.
