The Center promotes collaborative, interdisciplinary and comparative
scholarship, expressive cultural and creative works, and programming
that primarily focus on Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean. It seeks
to establish reciprocal relationships with other academic units,
centers, programs and community organizations and their constituents
through community outreach. The center's programs are open to faculty,
students and staff, and the community at large.
For our various constituents, we invite you to participate in our
activities, which are designed to foster awareness and promote
intellectual engagement about African and Black Diaspora Studies.
We invite individuals and groups from the broader community to
participate in intellectually stimulating programs designed to promote
scholarship, research, creative and artistic expression of the black
diaspora. Our programming involves guest scholars, artistic performances and workshops, colloquia and conferences, book discussions and film screenings that explore issues related to the culture and history of the black diaspora. Center events also highlight the scholarship and creativity of DePaul faculty, students and staff.
