Mr. Ampim has taught in the Department of History at Morgan State University (Baltimore, MD), and at San Francisco State University in the Dept. of Ethnic Studies. Also, Ampim has studied at Oxford University in England, and collaborated on a NASA-sponsored research project, which examined the ancient climate and migration patterns in Africa. Currently, Prof. Ampim teaches History at Contra Costa College (San Pablo, CA) and Africana Studies/Study Abroad at Merritt College (Oakland, CA), and he is teaching a 7-Step Primary Research Methodology Course at Advancing The Research.
Historian and primary researcher Professor Manu Ampim visited Google Mountain View to discuss “Classical African Contributions to the World in Math & Science.”
Professor Ampim has taken educational tours to North Africa and Central America. In addition, he has conducted an extensive 13-country research tour to all of the major museums, institutes and libraries throughout America, Europe and Canada, which house ancient Egyptian and Nubian artifacts. Since the 1990s, he has completed several field research projects in Egypt, Nubia, and the Sudan to continue his primary research at dozens of field sites to study ancient African social organization and spiritual culture, document modern forgeries, and to record the vanishing evidence of classical African civilizations in the Nile Valley.
His most extensive set of articles is the six-part essay on “The Vanishing Evidence of Classical African Civilizations.” From the origins of Pythagorean’s theorem to monuments in our Nation’s capital, his presentation demonstrates the importance and legacy of world contributions from Classical African Civilizations to the fields of writing, engineering, mathematics and medicine as we know them today.
His latest work is the “Save Nubia” campaign to help preserve the archaeological sites of ancient Nubia and Kush in the Sudan, which are threatened by the construction of dams.
