Book Description

This book examines the process and events surrounding the migration of African scholars, as well as their lives and lived experiences within and outside of their colleges and universities.

The chapters chronicle the lived-experiences and observations of African scholars in North America and examine a range of issues, ideas, and phenomenon within North American colleges and universities. The contributors examine the political, ethnic, or religious upheavals that informed their migration or banishment; contrast the teaching-learning-research environment in Africa and North America and discuss on and off-campus experience with segregation and racial inequality.

This book will be of interest to student and scholars of the African Diaspora, migration and African Studies.
