This Nile Valley educational study tour to  Ethiopia takes us to the holy land where time began and the birthplace of Dinknesh–the mother of all mankind.

Dr. Clinton Crawford, the tour leader, has traveled to many other African countries. He is also the author of Recasting Ancient Egypt in the African Context, 1996 and a professor at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York where he teaches the History of African Art,  the History of World Art, and other courses about African civilizations.  Experience Egypt from a truly African perspective.

Ebonics and Language Education of African Ancestry Students




This work comes at a time when people of African ancestry, particularly those in the Diaspora, are experiencing an important re-examination of self in relationship to their geographical space and origin. The most recent African language, Ebonics, captures the unmistakable and substantial evidence of this inquiry, while connecting itself to the African family of languages as far back as one of the most ancient ones, Medew Netjer.  Ebonics and Language Education of African Ancestry Students examines the political, linguistic, cultural and social history of African people with the expressed intention to place the reader in the authentic context of the development of Ebonics.
