A Notebook on Dometi Pongo

Pongo in NYC with black studies crew 2010
Dometi Pongo has been one of our leading contributors since arriving to the university back in 2008. He has helped us coordinate programs, led public humanities projects, and produced the one-of-a-kind Malcolm X Mixtape, to name just a few of his contributions.

Pongo or "Proph" (short for his stage-name Prophecy) graduated on Saturday. I've provided links to some of our coverage of him and his writings on the blog. I imagine this list will grow as his graduation will hardly stop us from calling on him for assistance.
