Ruhana Mumin

Ruhama Mumin, a psychology major,  has  taken two AFS courses: AFS 277.01 The Modern Color Line & AFS 340.01 Human Rights and Africa.

In summer 2022,  Ruhama is completing a research internship with The Rising Majority. The Rising Majority is a broad-based coalition of Black, Indigenous people of color (POC), and multiracial groups working to build political power toward a more just and humane world.  Ru will be assisting the organization with its research needs.  

Ruhama writes: "AFS340, International Human Rights and Africa helped me gain a better understanding of the non-profit sector on an international scale, which is greatly informing the work I must do in this internship. I also heard about this fantastic internship through my AFS professor, Dr. Abena Asare, who told me about this position. I am enjoying putting the knowledge I've acquired from my AFS courses about US racial history and  international human rights to good use as a research assistant for The Rising Majority."
