Welcome from Dr. Tracey Walters

Welcome to our Fall 2015 semester. We are building on the momentum of a fantastic Spring 2015 semester!

We are pleased to announce a number of noteworthy changes in the dept. Along with re-tooling our website, we’re developing on-line courses for the winter and summer sessions.  This term, we’ll continuing offering students thought-provoking, relevant courses, programming that’s timely and transformative, and an intellectual space that allows for fruitful discussions of contemporary issues such #BlackLivesMatter. It’s a great time to be an Africana Studies major!

The world is rapidly changing and Africana studies is at the forefront of this transformation. Please continue to make good use of the Library reading and research room and join us for programs such as Africana Studies presents (September 30th and October 28), From the Color Line to the Carceral State: Surveillance, Prisons, and Police in the Making of Mass Incarceration and The LBGTQ Experience in Communities of Color (November 17th).

Finally, we’re continuing to establish our virtual presence. Please like or join us on Facebook and twitter.

Have a great Fall 2015!


Tracey L. Walters, Ph.D.
