    Some barriers that stand in the way of women's equal participation are that if people are not aware of climate change they are not aware of the barriers or women. Another barrier is pay men and boys get more opportunities and get paid for it, unlike women or girls.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use We are all connected: Wangari Maathai
    What did you learn about Maathai's work? How is her work connected to contemporary African diaspora and climate change? What is one connection between events in Africa and decisions made across the world in American?

    I learned that she founded many environmental initatives in Africa to help teach people about planting trees, and to collaborate with different groups, specifically women's groups, to plant trees. She helped inspire people and break cultural glass ceilings by becoming the first woman in parts of Africa to ear a doctorates degree. She also introduced many people to the concept of sustainibility.

    I am going to reflect on number one. I think that this is a good guiding principle because it is very catch-all.  it basically means that everyone is created equal and that e should fight for the rights of anyone being mistreated.

    The guiding principle of diversity can show up in our school community on a regular basis by incorporating the principle into the curriculum. Maybe read more texts/books that are by African American authors or make the writing topic about diversity so we can research the topic on our own/write a story about a time when we overcame diversity, and teach our peers. Anything that can change the curriculum a bit, will make a difference in our understanding and helps the school community.

    They have been obscured because of racism ant the fact that most people who make history books were focused on white and eropeans accomplishments.
    By telling people about their accomplishments and to keep what they have made and done.

    the accomplishments of the african civilizations has been obscured by roumers, or just misinterpretations that Africa has and still is just a desert with people who are poor. that is not true. we can sustain their accomplishments by teaching as many people about what they have done.

    I think that the accomplishments of African Civilization have been obscured because they don't realize that all their culture and money and traditions are originally from the great country of Africa other than that we really don't know.
