This week on Papa PhD, I’m talking about the importance of africana heritage and of HBCUs for young American Africans wanting to pursue their education with Kweli Zukeri.
Kweli Zukeri was born and raised in Falls Church, Va. He has a BA in Journalism and Mass Communication and minor in social entrepreneurship from UNC at Chapel Hill, as well as an M.S. in Psychology (2018) and Ph.D. (2021) in Developmental Psychology from Howard University. Both his master thesis and dissertation focused on exploring the impact of African-centered school-based programming on American African student racial and cultural identity, as well as American African student learning. Prior to his recent graduate studies, he also studied ancient African/Kemetic language for 2 years in Howard’s department of Africana studies, and has been a facilitator of the Egypt on the Potomac Field Trip of Washington, D.C., for the last decade.
Thank you, Kweli Zukeri!
