Benjamin Banneker & The African Roots of His Science

In his lecture “Benjamin Banneker & The African Roots of His Science,” historian and author C.R. Gibbs brings us the largely unheralded saga of the myriad ways in which the scientific traditions of West Africa influenced the young astronomer and mathematician. At time in which so much of his training and intellectual development was credited solely to others, little study has been given to the techniques, laws, and principles passed down to him from the culture of his father and grandfather. Discover the fascinating legacy of the rich and historically important region of Africa from which his ancestors originated and its ancient heritage of thought, study, experimentation, and achievement.
