A Princely Visit

Throughout this trimester, 6th grade students are investigating how others have influenced Africa and on Tuesday, they interviewed Samuel Nana-Sinkam. Samuel was born and raised in Cameroon and currently lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He brought a unique experience to our classroom, because he is a prince of the Bamileke tribe in Cameroon and worked for many years with the United Nations. During the interview Samuel discussed tribal life, how colonialism has affected his life and his native country, and his current work as a financial advisor to several countries in Africa. Students asked thought-provoking questions and learned a great deal from his unique perspective.
