What is the African Diaspora and did it exist in the ancient and pre-modern worlds?

Directions: Read the prompt and answer in a persuasive essay. Break down the prompt into as
many necessary questions as possible. The first question is usually the guiding question and
you should build your thesis and intro around it. Each remaining question should have its own
paragraph. Papers also have a conclusion paragraph.

Remember, papers are not graded as right or wrong but by the strength of the argument. You
must address the whole prompt and use all the articles noted in the prompt.

Prompt: What is the African Diaspora and did it exist in the ancient and pre-modern worlds?
In order to satisfactorily answer the question, you MUST explain Palmer’s definition of the
African Diaspora and use the theses and arguments of the Ogunremi, Snowden, and Hunwick
articles as evidence.

In addition to the directions above, please follow the directions below:
1. All papers should have a thesis and an argument; a thesis is a well-thought-out answer
to the prompt. You will revise your thesis several times while writing the paper.
2. All papers should have an argument; in this case you are using each article to support
your argument. Each article deserves to be discussed in a separate paragraph.
3. The paper should not exceed two pages. It should be double-spaced (not 1.5 spaced) in
12-point font with one-inch margins on all four sides.
4. Use necessary Chicago citation:
Do NOT use parenthetical references (Owens, 13). That is incorrect; I demonstrated
how to use Chicago citations in class.
