Joseph Mbele

I am a Tanzanian professor in the English Department at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, having previously taught at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. I teach Literature and Folklore from around the world. My Lulu book, "Africans and Americans: Embracing Cultural Differences," is popular, especially among Americans going to Africa and Africans living in the U.S.A. It is used in some universities around the USA and as far as China. My other Lulu book, "Matengo Folktales," is also widely read and even used in college classes. It hit the limelight on November 23, 2017, when it was featured on "Jeopardy," the famous American TV program. Recently, I published "Chickens in the Bus: More Thoughts on Cultural Differences," which has quickly become popular.
