The John L. Warfield Center Congratulates the Recipients of this Year’s Patrice Lumumba Graduate Research Fellowships in History

Patrice Emery Lumumba (1925-1961) was the first Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He founded the Congolese National Movement, the first nationwide Congolese political party, through which he sought to dismantle the internal factionalism and Belgian oppression that divided the nation. Lumumba was committed to pan-Africanist goals, and was assassinated as a result of his attempt to implement those goals.

The Patrice Lumumba Graduate Research Fellowship in History is given to graduate students conducting historical research in Africa and the African Diaspora. Particular consideration is given to those students whose work demonstrates a social commitment commensurate with Lumumba’s objectives. The fellowship is administered by WCAAAS and Dr. Toyin Falola in the Department of History.
