TEXTBOOK - "A History of African Civilizations"

$24.95 each

The History of African Civilizations is a textbook and course reader based on the original primary research of Prof. Ampim, and it is complete with lesson plans and unit resources. This textbook follows the History 110 course outline at Contra Costa College in San Pablo, California, and it focuses on human origins and African civilizations at the apex of Africa’s contributions to humanity.

This course, taught exclusively by Ampim, is one of the few in the U.S. that examines ancient African civilizations without dealing with the modern derailment of Africa, when it descended into slavery and colonialism several centuries ago.


Manu Ampim is a professor of History and Africana Studies at Contra Costa College. He has authored books, articles, and field reports, and is the Director of Advancing The Research. He is a leading scholar who has conducted pioneering field research on African civilizations in 22 countries.
