My name is Derek Liu and as a student at Emory University I am exploring the African Cosmos. This subject combines the ideas of African art history and the ideas of astronomy. The coming together of art and science demonstrated by the African Cosmos is the cornerstone of a liberal arts perspective of viewing the world and allow for creativity to be expressed in more than one way. The purpose of this site is to collect information and news from present day situations in Africa as well as the universe and look at the implications of what is happening. The aim of these blog entries are to inform readers about situations that have major importance in understanding the world but are not in the spotlight of the media for everyday individuals.
