PAS Student Spotlight

Shatari Dunmore

Shatari Dunmore is a senior Pan-African Studies major and a Political Science minor. Shatari is the secretary for the Mi Psi Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and the historian for Clemson University National Pan-Hellenic Council. Shatari grew up listening to stories of her family history from her great-grandparents and as a result began reading stories about Dr. King, Sojourner Truth, Thurgood Marshall, Malcolm X, and other great black leaders. After the death of Trayvon Martin, Shatari gained an even greater interest in black activism and struggles. Once Shatari found out Clemson offered a Pan-African studies program, she knew it was the perfect fit for her.
