BRONDIHOUSE produces impactful and meaningful opportunities for students, educators, and organizations to learn about foundational Black History. BRONDIHOUSE challenges and expands on what is traditionally taught–that Black history started in slavery–and instead, provides a more comprehensive and inclusive perception of Black history and its legacy of greatness.
ShaRhonda Knott-Dawson of BRONDIHOUSE will provide two virtual one-hour interactive workshops on following content, each tailored to the specific elementary-age group.

ShaRhonda Knott-Dawson will share her knowledge about Black History—the foundational Black History that spans centuries and, more specifically, history rooted in West Africa. Because the vast majority of the African American population in the United States are from West Africa, our Black History Month presentations focus on the pre-colonial West African Civilizations: The Ghana Empire and The Mali Empire. Children will learn about early West African Civilizations, and its long-lasting impact on human history, continuing to today. In the presentation on West African civilizations, we will discuss West Africa's economies (gold and salt), the culture (griots and matrilineal society), and highlight the academic powerhouse, Timbuktu, and its impact on world civilization. Workshop attendees will gain a greater understanding of West Africa, and the lasting cultural, economic and scientific contributions of West African civilizations.
