Udeesa Systemics & Technology was founded in 2018 after experiencing the severe misrepresentation of African heritage in traditional schooling within the United States.
As a first Generation African-American I was raised with the understanding that, in addition to being the largest continent, the land and cultural ideologies of Africa, its people, and their descendants have played a critical role in the development of world culture & economy. I did not understand why, if this was the case, there remained so many misconceptions about the continent and its growth potential throughout the educational system.
To address these misconceptions, many of which stemmed from a lack of primary resources, my team and I used 360-degree photography & videography to preserve our travels throughout Africa. We returned to demonstrate the application of virtual reality in the classroom for students k-12 and shared our work at College conferences and forums along the East Coast of the United States.
- The Harvard University’s African Business Conference
- The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton African Business Forum
- Lehigh University's Africana Studies; Immersive Technology Expo
- LIVP Africa day Symposium
Today, we have incorporated our growing collection of virtual tours, virtual reality and other emerging technologies into our interactive African Folktale Series of Anansi the Spider in order to provide educational tools & primary resources to students, parents and educators as they explore Africa's past, present and future.
