Africana Studies is dedicated to developing expertise and knowledge of the black experience in the African Diaspora. We offer a forum for students to understand the significant contributions blacks have made to world civilization and the American experiment.
Africana Studies "is not simply some automatic understanding that flows from being black," but represent "a conscious inquiry into the history, culture, and sociopolitical condition of African and African American people. It is an exploration that calls for understanding of African and African American realities in the world, not divorced from it."—Johnetta Cole, Ph.D.
