    Thank you very much Dr. Fofana. I see I have an email from you as well. I look forward to giving it my full attention. I am compiling a list of black women in Europe who are subject matter experts in politics, culture, education, sports, integration, migration, etc for the Black European Women’s Council. Please send your suggestions with contact information/links to biographies to Thank you.

  7. Congratulations! Keep doing what you are doing!

    I am trying to get familiar with your website, am a technophobe but would like to share that my expertise is English Language/Literatue/Caribbean History. At the moment I am trying to get a little more engaged on the ten points of the Caricom Reparations Commission Plan. The meetings on Fridays I would love to attend but don’t see how I can go on that invitation list. Could you help a technophobe find her feet on this fantastic page? 🙂
