André Teko Interview
André Teko was born in Togo but forced to flee that country because of his political activities. He worked initially as a university professor at the University of Benin, but when members of the military dictatorship in Togo attempted to kidnap him, he was forced to flee once more. He was granted refugee status in the United States and now teaches at Bates College in Lewiston. In this interview of October 30, 2005 he talks to Daniel Koumou-nete about his political activities in Togo and Benin, adapting to life in the United States, and cultural differences between Africa and the United States.
