Friends of Patrice Nganang,
 
this fundraiser is to help cover the legal fees to free our professor, son, brother, friend, father and husband - Professor Patrice Nganang. 

Patrice faces charges in Cameroon linked to his writings critical of the Cameroonian situation and government. 

He was arrested December 6, 2017, while embarking on a flight for Harare (Zimbabwe) to join his wife and daughter.

As of 14 December, Patrice is still incarcerated at the Kondengui Prison in Yaounde, Cameroon. 

ABOUT PATRICE NGANANG: 

He was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon, and educated both in Cameroon and in Germany, and now a US citizen.  He holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and is currently a professor of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at Stony Brook University in New York state. In Spring 2018, he is scheduled to serve as an Old Dominion Professor at Princeton University and to take up a fellowship at Princeton's Humanities Council. Nganang is the author of several prize-winning novels, including Mount Pleasant (Mont Plaisant) and Dog Days (Temps de Chien), as well as several books of essays and poetry.

This morning on 27 December, after 21 days of detention, a surprise hearing was convened in Yaounde.

ALL CHARGES against Patrice were dropped.
He was released and is now traveling back to the US!

We could not have done this without all of your help.
