Adwoa Dunn-Mouton first went to Africa as a student abroad from the University of California at Berkeley, and her first impression was of the cultural similarities between black people in Africa and America. This was further enhanced when she attended the African Liberation Day demonstrations in San Francisco in 1972, which strengthened her connection to Africa.  She started working with the Southern African Support Project, doing educational outreach and fundraising to support the liberation struggles in Southern Africa.  At the beginning of 1986 she started working for Congressman Howard Wolpe, chair of the Subcommittee on Africa of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and focused on looking at the position the media was taking with regard to South Africa.

Dunn-Mouton continues her work on African issues as a member of the board of TransAfrica.
