Curriculum Vitae


What Does African American American Studies Mean to You?

"African-American Studies is reflective of a commitment to understand the space and place that African-descended people throughout the diaspora call home as complex sites of struggle, resistance and transformation. As a discipline that was created by community members, students and scholars to understand struggle while building transformative futures, African-American studies must understand this commitment as central to the field." --Dave Stovall
