About the Minor

The African American Studies minor focuses on African and African American history and culture related especially to the experiences of African people living in the Americas. The program provides students with knowledge and an understanding of an Afrocentric world view and traces the roots of oppression of African people. Additionally, the minor encourages students to continue their involvement in African American scholarship and make strong contributions to the increasingly multicultural American society by becoming proactive members of their communities.
