Sep 17, 2020

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we get to know Kojo Asamoa-Caesar, who is the Democrat running for Congress in Oklahoma's First District. As noted at his campaign website: "Asamoa-Caesar is a first-generation American, the son of a certified nursing assistant and a taxi driver who were drawn to the United States from Ghana by the call of the American Dream.... After graduating [from the College of William & Mary Law School], rather than entering a career in law, Kojo decided to join Teach for America, which brought him to Tulsa as a kindergarten teacher in 2013.... Kojo was [later] asked to serve as the founding principal of Greenwood Leadership Academy, an elementary school in North Tulsa... Most recently, Kojo served as interim executive director at 36 Degrees North, a co-working space that serves as Tulsa's basecamp for entrepreneurs."
