We have a very large group of incoming freshman this year! Welcome! I am excited to get to know so many of you. Our stretch writing courses are going to be very exciting. My themes for the Fall semester are Black Consciousness (113A) and Hip Hop of the African World (114A). In the Spring, the themes are The Permanence of Racism (113B) and The Strength and the Struggles of Black Women (114B). I look forward to our critical reading, thinking, and discussions! I am also teaching Colonialism in Africa (Fall) and the Model African Union course (466B) in the Spring. We will be representing Sénégal as a delegation in Washington, DC at the Model African Union simulation, hosted by Howard University. Have a wonderful and successful academic year!
