EDUDZI DAVID SALLAH is a Ph.D. student in English at Texas A&M University, where he also earned his MA in Performance Studies. His MA thesis examined the grim spectacle of a now-defunct pre-nineteenth-century Anlo-Ewe (an ethnolinguistic community of Ghana) form of capital punishment called toko atolia, which won him a number of research grants and a research fellowship. He is currently interested in the study of Black transnationalism, especially connections and disconnections between indigenous African and African American cultures/literatures.
