This week 3EO's very own Historian, C.R. Gibbs will focus on the first 500,000 years of recorded history of the African legacy.

Mr. C.R. Gibbs, historian of the African Diaspora, author and humanities scholar, is the author/co-
author of six books and a frequent national and international lecturer on an array of historical
information. He has appeared several times on the History Channel, French and Belgian television,
and researched, wrote and narrated "Sketches in Color," a 13-part companion series to the acclaimed
PBS series, "The Civil War" for WHUT-TV, the Howard University television station. The
Smithsonian Institution's Anacostia Community Museum features Mr. Gibbs among its scholars at
the museum’s Online Academy.

"Philosophers have long conceded that every man has two educations:
'that which is given to him, and the other that which he gives himself.
Of the two kinds the latter is by far the more desirable.'
Indeed all that is most worthy in man he must work out and conquer for himself.
It is that which constitutes our real and best nourishment.
What we are merely taught seldom nourishes the mind like that which we teach ourselves."
Dr. Carter G. Woodson
