Femi Bogle-Assegai

Femi Bogle-Assegai selected education as her professional path at the age of sixteen, and has been committed to the "education" of people for the last forty years.

Her work in the field has been at many levels, within both private and public institutions, in England, the United States, Africa and the Caribbean. Today, she is a retired educator, however Ms. Bogle-Assegai continues to work as an Adjunct Professor within the Connecticut State University system.

At this time her primary focus revolves around the volunteer work with young people as the CEO of Sankofa-Kuumba, a community based non-profit Arts organization.

This includes, but is not limited to, the writing and securing of grants from the CT Humanities and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
