What did you get your master’s degree in and why?

My master’s degrees are in Public Policy and History.  I embarked on these courses of study, because I’m interested in Nation Building and State-Craft for the Global African Diaspora.  I’m also interested in the formation of institutions, political/economic systems, and bureaucracies; forming them and subverting and dismantling them.  Also, Malcolm’s observation that; history is the foundational disiplne and course of studay that feeds all others has stuck with me since I was an adolencent and I’ve studied history every since, formally and informally.

I want to clarify however, I received training in the University, my education come from my community and the Black Liberation Struggle.  The only souces of educaton for Black peole is the struggle and the community, not the schools and institutions of our oppressors.
