A student-centered teaching methodology is an essential ingredient of a successful Pan- African literary course. Using such an approach, I combine reading assignments with journals, film presentations, and lectures in a productive learning environment in which I play the role of invisible facilitator of intellectual exchange. My method incorporates a variety of Pan-African literary and historical works that help students understand the relations between Blacks of Africa and the Diaspora.
