Mvuyekure Published and Quoted on PBS Documentary

Congratulations to Pierre-Damien Mvuyekure, professor of English and American/African American literature in the Department of Languages and Literatures, for publishing a poem, “Fear Not, South Africa," in the January/February 2014 issue of Konch Magazine.

The poem is about South African leaders, including Nelson Mandela from prior to his 1990 release from prison.

Congratulations are also due to Mvuyekure being quoted in a PBS documentary, Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth, which aired a few days ago. The article quoted was “Alice Walker’s Colonial Mind” (Konch 1999), and is a post-colonial analysis of Possessing the Secret of Joy, a novel by Alice Walker.
