Hapa Happy Hour
A lively discussion and celebration of the mixed heritage experience.
Correction re: Pushkin

Hello dear listeners and readers,

I must apologize for having made an incorrect statement in Episode 23, "Theatre Arts Hapa."  I said that Alexander Pushkin's mother was Nigerian.  I was wrong.  In fact, she was Russian, and her grandfather, Abram Petrovich Gannibal (aka Abraham Hannibal), was black African--possibly from what is now Cameroon, possibly from Ethiopia, it's not certain where.  But he was a page and then a general and friend to Peter the Great.  

Pushkin was a person of mixed heritage who was proud of his black African ancestry.  To listen to a fantastic podcast by two women with black and white heritage,

Thank you all for listening to our podcast and reading the blog!
