Five College African Scholars Program Welcomes First Group of Scholars

(Front row: left to right) Sanya Osha, James Zaja, Adam Mwakalobo (Back row, left to right) Nate Therien, director of academic programs, Five Colleges, Inc.; Katwiwa Mule, chair, Recruitment and Selection Committee, Five College African Scholars Program (ASP); Rowland Abiodun, chair, Executive Committee, ASP; MHC English professor John Lemly, program director, ASP; and Linda Faulkingham, program coordinator, ASP.

Although living in New England—particularly at current numbing temperatures—will be a big change for three scholars who arrived in the area from Africa three weeks ago, Adam Mwakalobo, Sanya Osha, and James Zaja should feel right at home at an upcoming welcome reception in their honor at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. The three men will be surrounded not only by area faculty, students, and staff, but also by more than 400 handcrafted African objects from their homeland. The works are currently on view in African Forms, an exhibition that will continue at the art museum through March 14. The welcome reception is set for Friday, February 7, at 5 pm. Preceding the reception, Rebecca K. Gearhart '89 will give a talk titled "The Swahili Art of Life: Artists and Expressive Culture on the Kenya Coast" at 4 pm in Gamble Auditorium. more>
