Working with numerous post-secondary institutions, we have coordinated and supported visits of special visitors amongst various campuses. In this way, we have been able to bring African studies scholars, musicians, activists, novelists, and film-makers amongst an array of college and university campuses. Through this collaboration and cost-sharing of expenses, these individuals have had a much broader reach to faculty and students across Illinois and the United States.
