Liberal/Global Liberal Studies Master Teacher Cheryl Sterling has been honored by the New York African Studies Association with its 2013 Distinguished Book Award for her book, African Roots, Brazilian Rites: Cultural and National Identity in Brazil, published by Palgrave Macmillan (2012). The award was granted  during their 38th annual conference at Binghamton University, titled “GLOBAL AFRICA, TRIPLE HERITAGE AND PAX AFRICANA: LOOKING BACK AND LOOKING FORWARD.” NYASA was founded in 1967 and is dedicated to advancing the discipline of Africana Studies. It encompasses Africanists who are faculty members at colleges and universities, researchers, professionals and students from New York State and surrounding areas, and offers opportunities for the scholarly and professional development of educators, and enhanced education for community members, leaders and activists.

We congratulate Dr. Sterling on behalf of the entire faculty and staff of Global/Liberal Studies.
