Robert A. Bellinger, a professor in Suffolk University’s history department and director of the Black Studies program, discusses his areas of expertise, his experiences in Africa, and his thoughts on Pan-Africanism and the relationship between Africans and African Americans. The interview covers the way Africa is presented in the media; the lack of interest in, and the denigration of, African culture; African students at Suffolk University; and his wishes for Africa. Mr. Bellinger concludes by expressing his desire for students to support the Black Studies program and to take advantage of the opportunities available on campus related to African culture.
