“Osayande’s passion, compassion and hope drew our students to him. His scholarship-based approach on the realities of racial oppression was indisputable. Our students were challenged to appreciate their collective humanity. He has planted the seeds of power. We continue to tend the garden in anticipation of social justice in full bloom!”
