  13. Dear Andrea, I am so sorry that I did not see your message in time.

    Did you get in touch with Dr. Ani? She is Professor of Afrikan Studies in the Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College in New York City and you can reach her there.

  14. Dear Adrianne,

    I'm writing you because I need to contact Dr. Ani for an interview with “Il Manifesto”, one of the most important Italian daily newspapers.
    Do you know how I can find her? Please, if you read this comment, answer as soon as possible at: andrealuchetta@hotmail.it , since the article has to be written at least three days before Obama's installation.
    Thank you very much for your attention.
    Best regards,

    Andrea Luchetta
