Here’s introducing Abena Boakyewa-Ansah, a first-generation Black British woman, living in the American South since 2016. She was born in Scotland, raised in England by her Ghanaian father and Trinidadian mother. After studying the American Civil War as an undergraduate, she learned the untapped power of black narratives in American history, and how they can inform pursuits of racial justice, equality, and reconciliation, today. This led her to where she is now, Nashville, Tennessee, pursuing her Ph.D. in History. Besides being a self-confessed nerd, Abena is a woman of faith, enjoying theology and seeking to ask the hard questions of the world and life, in order to have a deeper understanding of God.
And in this episode, we explored her identity via her ancestral roots and the one borne in Christ. We also talked about surviving America, racial identity, mental issues in grad school, and dating in your 20s.PS: S/O to Dr. Ayomide Adebayo for the introduction.
