Joey Lywak


This paper takes its reader on the shared sociological journey of Virginia Tech professor Biko Agozino and University of Winnipeg graduate Joey Lywak. It outlines their by chance encounter and subsequent correspondence which has led to extensive benefits for both parties. A snapshot of Agozino’s liberating sociology (academic activism) was sought out by Lywak for a class project. This request was received and fulfilled graciously. Subsequently, their joint efforts have produced an assignment that highlights both of their talents and expertise. Agozino’s noble endeavours gain the recognition they deserve while Lywak is able to supplement this biographical tale with a number of concepts and theories, in this his final submitted work as an undergraduate.
