Meanwhile in Africa…
Meanwhile in Africa (MIA) is a supplemental social studies curriculum for students in grades K-5 built on the idea that African American history does not begin with slavery. MIA teaches students about the discoveries, inventions, and achievements that were cultivated in Africa before, during, and after the transatlantic slave trade and how that knowledge and culture impact us today. Designed to give African American students a greater sense of self and affirm their identities, MIA’s interactive and engaging activities, coupled with its emphasis on entrepreneurship, make it a well-rounded, representative, and factual view of history for any student group.
