African American Studies

The Center for African American Studies

The African American Studies Program is housed in the Center for African American Studies (CAAS). CAAS sponsors a wide variety of academic and cultural events every year. Programs include an annual fall lecture series, hosting a distinguished lecturer every spring, and holding poetry readings and artistic events. The Center also sponsors a series of events during Black History Month. All CAAS events are open to the general public, and our majors are not only encouraged to attend, but also frequently have the opportunity to meet major figures from the world of African American Studies.
