01 The NYASA Bulletin
Greetings NYASA Members and Supporters,
In 1973 The New York African Studies Association was created out of the SUNY African Studies Faculty Committee (of 1968). Whether we are now in our 49th year or our 43rd, NYASA strives to promote Africana Studies at home and abroad. We do this by bringing together scholars, publishing research, and supporting teachers and students. As a supporter of NYASA, you will periodically receive “NYASA Bulletins” that will highlight member activities, discuss a current issue, or announce an event (if needed, please adjust your spam filter). We hope that you will both enjoy NYASA Bulletins and find them valuable.
All NYASA Bulletins will be numbered and archived at our website http://newyorkafricanstudiesassociation.org/ .

NYASA Members Take Students in Senegal
NYASA President Kevin Hickey and Vice President Cheikh Ndiaye recently spent three weeks with students in Senegal. The students completed internships, attended lectures at The West African Research Center http://www.warccroa.org/home/ and traveled the country.

One important result of a study abroad in Senegal is that the students no longer have a single story for Africa nor a single story for Senegal. This elimination of “the single story” is one of NYASA’s many goals. https://www.ted.com/talks/chimamanda_adichie_the_danger_of_a_single_story
