Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture

African and African-American Studies

The African & African American Studies Department is designed to establish coordinated interdisciplinary study of the history and culture, the social and economic issues, the political institutions and processes that have shaped the experiences of people of African ancestry.

The program serves as an interdisciplinary intellectual center that encourages research and scholarship in many dimensions of African and African American experiences. It provides access to a broad range of information and research not only from the humanities and the social sciences, but also from the arts and professions.
