Khari Austin Franklin

Class of 2024
Undergraduate, Major

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Khari is a member of the class of 2024 studying African American studies with a certificate in Statistics & Machine Learning. At Princeton, Khari enjoys dancing as a member of the Black Arts Company, Dorobucci, and BodyHype dance company, competing as a captain of the mock trial team, and hosting events with the Black Men's Association. When he's not doing extracurriculars, Khari is diving into research about the roles and implications of traditional West-African dance on American education. Tackling all of these challenges is made possible in large part due to the amazing faculty and staff of the AAS department, who were Khari's main motivation (among many others) for declaring AAS as a concentration. Khari is excited to keep learning, growing, and having fun during his last few semesters of school!
