Liberation Learnings: Dr. Micere Mugo

May 1, 2012 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Liberation Learnings:

Lessons for Today from
African Anti-Colonial Struggles

In honor of the worldwide struggle for workers’ rights we present Dr. Micere Mugo, a playwright, poet, author, activist and educator from Kenya as our guest speaker. Dr. Mugo teaches in the African American Studies Department at Syracuse University. She is a cofounder of the Pan African Community of Central New York.

Forced into exile in 1982 as a result of her activism, Dr. Mugo has a long history of struggle for social justice, equality and peace. She will share from her personal experiences and research. In an interview to be published in the May Peace Newsletter, Dr. Mugo describes a fundamental aspect of her Kukuyu culture as follows, “you cannot assert your humanity alone. Once you assert your humanity, you need to assert the other person’s humanity. Otherwise, you are not whole.”

The program is free and open to the public.
