One of the most important aspects of this forum was the moment in which Dr. Furusa, a Zimbabwean professor of Africana Studies at California State University Dominguez Hills, announced that he has incorporated Garifuna studies within his curricula.
Dr. Furusa invited the audience to continue to stay focused and to share the wealth of the Garifuna culture to others.
He also invited the youth in the audience to come and explore Cal State Dominguez Hills as a possible venue for their college education.
