On October 24, 2022, Africology & African American Studies Doctoral Student Najaa Rogers, MA, shared her dissertation research questions and findings with fellow graduate students and faculty during a Nommo session. Najaa's topic, "Education for Mental Liberation and Decolonization: Afrocentric Schools," generated a lively scholarly discussion about the political and cultural relevance of Afrocentric education for Black children. Najaa Rogers is expected to defend her dissertation in the next few months. We wish her all the very best!
