Title: African Immigrants in the U.S

 

PRESENTER: Cherif Correa – English Instructor at Madison College

 

This presentation will not be recorded.

While sharing his own experience and perspective on immigration issues in the United States, Cherif Correa will illustrate their complexity and implications — too often absent in such discussions — by referring to:

  • “My personal experience”...
  • Discussions “in my African Literature class at Madison College” and...
  • “An encounter I had with a Senegalese immigrant who was being deported to Senegal.”

Kid-friendly, free public lecture, no reservations or tickets needed.
