We take pride in the culture of our department. We draw connections between various fields of study and the rich history of African American and African diaspora achievements. We advance the arts through the productions of our exceptional ensembles. We are advocates for a more complete understanding of the politics, history, and contributions of African American and African diaspora cultures, examining them in classes that are unique, dynamic, and life-changing. We look squarely at the corrosive effects of racism, and work in the direction of social justice.
It’s about more than academics
You will benefit tremendously from the caring professors and well-structured courses.Nana Abena Amoah, Ph.D. student
