African American Studies Program


The African American Studies Program allows students to explore and evaluate elements of world and U.S. cultures that are often overlooked. This program:

  • Gives students a deeper appreciation for the rich ethnic heritage that is part of the American mosaic

  • Provides insight into the complex relationships between African Americans and U.S. society

  • Addresses the collective experience of Africans of the diaspora, American slave descendants and anyone with black African heritage, who, despite slavery and colonialism, rose to impressive heights in all disciplines

  • Highlights the continuous struggle for cultural preservation
