FROM Brooklyn, NY
Akosua Albritton holds a Master’s in Urban Planning from Pratt Institute. The College of New Rochelle’s Brooklyn campus hired her to be an Adjunct Professor where she was selected later to teach two summer intensives during the four weekends of August, 2000 - 2011. The intensives, History of Blacks in Brooklyn & Festivals as Cultural Expressions, involved 3-hour lecturing Friday nights and visiting to museums, parks, festivals, concerts, & places of interest throughout Brooklyn & the other boroughs Saturdays & Sundays. This experiential learning is the foundation of seven neighborhood walks, talks, and tours.
