Ghanaian Authors

Ghana Ghana. The first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence, a regional power in West Africa, and home to 30 million people. Ghana like many other African countries has a rich oral literature history. For this post, I wanted to discover the writings of Ghanaians and I think this selection of books is a good introduction to Ghanaian authors and a peek into Ghanaian culture and history. Each one of these authors were either born and/or raised in Ghana or have a parent who is Ghanaian.

Dialogue With Neighbors

A Community Conversation Series

Please join us across the city for a three-part structured community dialogue in June 2018. Each dialogue will build on the previous one.

Live Off the Land

Wonderful "Wee Beasties"

The teeny, teeming world of microbes

Yes, this winter's flu season has been the worst in many years. And, okay, an outbreak of norovirus caused concern at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Home is Where the Hatred is

Stories of Brutality at the Hands of Your Own Country

We often think of bigotry in terms of individual failings. We shame individuals who perpetuate racism and homophobia as people separate from a well-meaning whole.
