With eighteen more days left before the public-media premiere of Jarreth Merz’s An African Election, the R and National Black Programming’s AfroPOP.TV had a wonderful tweetversation this past Wednesday about the philosophy of Pan-Africanism, which is the founding principle of Ghana’s politics. We invited Dr. James Peterson, who’s Director of Africana Studies and an associate professor of English at Lehigh University and was so kind to guest-tweet. Suffice to say, we had a rollickingly fun, late-evening chat not only about the tenets of Pan-Africanism, but also its limitations, Latinidad, and gender politics, thanks to all of you Racializens who joined in!
