Remember when you had your very first day of school, and you cried for your parents not to leave you? Your first day of university was probably the exact opposite. When Kerubo Anassi’s dad helped her move to New York to start her graduate studies, and then couldn’t get a flight back to the Kenyan-American family’s hometown of Houston due to Hurricane Harvey, he decided to do the most ‘dad’ thing ever and crash her first class. It goes without saying that hilarity ensued.
Enock Anassi, a professor himself, happily spent Kerubo’s entire oral history lesson seated near her, taking “audible” selfies and texting them to the rest of the family. His son, Omete, couldn’t resist sharing his father’s antics on Twitter, and they’ve now gone viral with almost 45 thousand retweets. “We need hilarious [and] informative content about first-generation African American families,” he added in the thread, and honestly, if an Anassi family sitcom ever came to be, we’d totally be here for it.
