Africa Dispatch is a publication produced aspart of New York University’s undergraduate Reporting Africa summer program at NYU-Accra. Over the course of six weeks, students undergo an intensive reporting rubric during which they generate stories that challenge the conventional Western mode of reporting on Ghana specifically and Africa more generally.
