African-American Cultural Studies
The Africana Studies Concentration track of African-American Cultural Studies seeks to promote an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the experiences and cultures of African American communities. This track focuses on historical, philosophical, religious, psychological, economic, religious and cultural traditions of the African Diaspora in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the role of forced migration and forced labor (slavery) in shaping the contemporary experiences of African-American identity and community. Also emphasized in this track are linkages to and distinctions from the experience of other minority communities in the United States.
