Historical & Cultural Literacy
APPEAL’s Historical & Cultural Literacy component includes a workshop series, a video warehouse, a reading list, and a resource bank to connect people to services and products that they may need or want in the realm of African/Black history, culture, socio-economic analysis and/or education. You can explore each of these below. The term “historical and cultural literacy” refers to teaching people to become proficient in the knowledge of the basics of world history and African/Black history and culture, and facilitating people’s progression from the basics to intermediate and advanced knowledge on various aspects of this vast history and culture in relation to past and present socio-economic conditions, particularly for people of African descent, locally, nationally and globally.
