Rodney Hopson shares stories about the influence of his mother and other elders in shaping his life journey as an American man of African descent in the United States and beyond. He sees how his lived background, academic, and professional interests have helped him to ask probing and unanswered questions, especially building a culturally responsive evaluation approach that addresses social justice issues in programs and in our society. His case reflects on his life passions and pursuits in helping young people, including an early teaching experience in Namibia, southern Africa, where he found an ancestral home and his deep commitment to generating pipelines and pathways in the evaluation field.
