Africa Agenda is currently seeking 25 Africans as well as 25 African-American volunteers to be interviewed as a part of the Denver Africana Project, a project that seeks to gather stories and ideas in the form of recorded interviews about Africans in the Denver metro area.
The project is a partnership between Maik Nwosu, professor of English at the University of Denver and the Africa Agenda organization. The Denver Africana Project presents an incredible opportunity to contextualize a wide array of stories related to African/African-American migration and diaspora narratives in the metro area. The aim is to bring to light a personal, community-based dimension to our understanding of the African diaspora in the area.
The interviews will be recorded, transcribed, and analyzed by a team of experts. Each interview will last approximately 30-45 minutes, and will be prepared for and conducted at some point between June,2015 and March, 2016. Interviewees will sign a consent form acknowledging that they agree to be on the record and that the results of their statements may be published as a part of the study. The outcome will highlight the accomplishments of everyone involved. The result will be a dynamic online, socio-cultural resource to be hosted by both the University of Denver and Africa Agenda.
We would greatly appreciate volunteers to be interviewed. If you would like to be considered a subject for this study, please let us know as soon as possible. Please write to us by replying to this email via the address Office at AfricaAgenda dot org, with a copy to Maik.Nwosu at du dot edu to indicate your interest.
