Delaware State University to Form Media Network With University in Ghana

Historically Black Delaware State University has entered into a partnership with the African University College of Communication of Ghana. Delaware State’s Center for Global Africa and African University College of Communication will collaborate on the formation of a media and communications network.

The collaboration is designed to support and advance the shared interests of Africa and the diaspora, especially with historically Black colleges and universities. The partnership between the two universities will encompass course development, faculty, and student exchanges. The partners will also cooperate to hold conferences on African and diasporan issues.

Ezrah Aharone, director of the Center for Global Africa at Delaware State University, stated that “the partnership will promote common initiatives and ideals of Africa and the diaspora while offering uniquely beneficial learning opportunities to students.”

Professor Aharone is a graduate of Hampton University in Virginia, where he majored in business management. He is the author of three books including his latest work The Sovereign Psyche: Systems of Chattel Freedom vs. Self-Authentic Freedom (2016).
