Neuroscientist and neurosurgeon share their photography.

The Seacoast African American Cultural Center will be sponsoring “Remembering African Roots”, a presentation by the team of Dr. James Nabwangu and his wife Dr. Marie Joubert Nabwangu.

The presentation will be held 3pm July 14, 2019 at Discover Portsmouth Center 10 Middle Street Portsmouth, NH.

The Nabwangu couple will share their fascinating and inspiring stories as a neurosurgeon, a neuroscientist, authors, and accomplished world travel photographers.

Dr. James Nabwangu distinguished himself by overcoming seemingly unsurmountable challenges of the 1940s British colonialism in Kenya and the racism of 1960s Baltimore to become the first African graduate of Johns Hopkins Medical School and eventually became a neurosurgeon. In 2014 he won an award from the International Leica Photography Competition.

Dr. Marie Joubert Nabwangu distinguished herself by being the first to describe a neurological condition known as the Joubert Syndrome. Marie’s photography has been described as being on a par with National Geographic photographers.
