On Monday, March 6, 2017 project co-founders Dr. Theresa Mamah and Natasha Norman visited Kennesaw State University in Atlanta GA. While there they acted as guest professors for Dr. Cindy Milligan who teaches communications classes at the school.
They shared #TheCashewAppleProject mission and and also engaged in open conversation about the stereotypical view of Africa. The students, who are studying intercultural communication, were excited to share their opinions and beliefs, and they were encouraged to open their minds to new perspectives
This is the second school appearance for #TheCashewAppleProject, and there are plans to visit 10 other colleges and universities in the Atlanta Metro area over the next few months.
