Laɣim Tehi Tuma (LTT) 2020 Fellows Lauren Lattimore (BMC ‘21), Lisa Adanye (BMC ‘23), and Ibrahim Zengbang Muta-Ali (UDS ‘21) will share a combined reflection of their experiences with their internships, Dagomba language and cultural learning, and work together on LTT’s Research Committee. They will also share vignettes of their individual inquiry projects, followed by small group discussions based on the topics they researched (histories of enslavement camps in Ghana, migration from rural to urban areas in Ghana, and familial artifacts). The Fellows will then facilitate a larger discussion on the current political and personal relevance of Black Study/ies and how to protect it from career and media commodification.
