During Spring Break, Dr. Tara T. Green (African American Studies) visited the University of Ghana, where she gave two lectures. As a special guest of the director and Kwame Nkrumah Chair of the Institute of African Studies, she presented from her book “A Fatherless Child: Autobiographical Perspectives of African American Men,” and she led a discussion with the institute’s faculty and graduate students on fatherlessness among African American communities as explored by Barack Obama in his autobiography. While there, she was asked by the chair of the English department to lecture to students and faculty on African-American Southern fiction writer Zora Neale Hurston.
