Ife Madzimoyo, a senior, Africana Women's Studies major at Bennett College for Women and a graduate of Atlanta's AYA Educational Institute, will share her experiences living, studying and traveling in Tanzania, East Africa, where she lived for nine months.

Through photos, stories and candid conversation, Ife will share her lessons and discoveries gained during her travels through Tanzania, South Africa and Zimbabwe, including those regarding identity, culture, language and globalization.

Ife will also share pieces of her current research regarding the East African Captive (slave) Trade in Tanzania and it's resulting effects in the coastal town of Bagamoyo, Tanzania, which she will continue to expand upon as a 2013 Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute Fellow at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (www.
