Seth N. Asumah, Africana Studies and Political Science departments, was a recipient of the Professor Ali A. Mazrui Outstanding Publication/Book and Educational Activities Award, presented at the 39th annual conference of the New York Africana Studies Association (NYASA). The conference was held at SUNY Cortland on April 4-5.

This inaugural award for NYASA was developed to echo and honor Ali A. Mazrui, a prominent Africanist, Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities, and the director and founder of the Institute of Global Cultural Studies at Binghamton University. NYASA developed the award to honor Mazrui for his commitment to NYASA and his distinguished scholarship, publication, educational activities, intellectual vibrancy, national and international prominence and reputation.

Asumah is the first scholar and educator in NYASA to receive this award. He is a State University of New York Distinguished Teaching Professor, professor of political science, professor of Africana studies and chairperson of the Africana Studies Department at SUNY Cortland.
