              “A PRESENTATION OF THE STUDY DOMAINS OUR CURRICULA EXECUTE”




                      In NATIONBUILDING, Agyei Akoto has produced a volume that challenges all Afrikan people,
                      particularly those of us in the United States, to confront with seriousness the responsibilities of
                      educating for liberation, and the reality that the goal of liberation must be Nationhood. This book
                      is a masterpiece of vision. More importantly, by writing candidly about the experience produced
                      by 20 years of sustained kazi (work) within a collective of creative thinkers and doers, the author
                      helps readers understand how the wisdom he reveals in NATIONBUILDING was developed.
                      One appreciates, through Agyei's writing that nationbuilding is the process that gives us form
                      and substance within humanity; it is through this process that we create and recreate the culture
                      that defines our lives. RBG Street Scholars Think Tank in it content, methods and global level of
                      participation is proving to beone of the most cutting edge digital academic demostrations online

Curricular Domains Outline (RBG Street Scholars Think Tank is horizontally,vertically
and concentrically integreted; so one learns / teaches multiple domains simutanously,
as against a linear subject curriculum.
 For example, the Standard American White Supremacy Curriculum most Afrikan
children in America are taught from…(Mentacide)

The five curricular domains provide the basis for the organization of the subject content
within the RBG Street Scholars Think Tanks various curricula. Each curricular domain
consists of one or more curriculum fields. The curriculum fields provide the actual
structural basis for RBG’s organization and presentation of subject matter within the
curriculum. The purpose of listing the several fields under the curricular domains is to
establish their relationships with the assumptions and aims of the ACTI (Afrikan
Centered Thematic Inventory) above.
The curriculum fields are listed below under the curricular domains, and include the
subject areas that comprise the respective fields of learning/treaching in RBG Street
Scholars Think Tank’s curricula.
