This is a research project created for an assignment in EDUC 326.  We wanted to expand on our observations of Somolian immigrant and African American classrooms through images.  We invite anyone to look at the galleries and leave comments.  We sincerely hope this site becomes a resource for understanding and appreciation of both the Somolian and African American cultures.

Please note that the dates are approximate as some events (such as the Somali Civil War that began in the 90’s) span two or more centuries.

The image and text sources are listed on the “Sources” page and in the “Resource” links on the left side of the “Home” page.
