Click here to read about Dasan Ahanu. He is the founder and coach of our resident poetry slam team- Jambalaya Soul Slam.

“That moment when you open an email from the director of the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research at Harvard and attached is a letter from Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. inviting you to be a Nasir Jones Fellow for the 2015-2016 academic year and saying he looks forward to your acceptance of this appointment. Yep, that moment. It happened this evening. Harvard. I’m excited!” – Dasan Ahanu – Founder, Jambalaya Soul Slam/Bull City Slam
