Global Black Studies

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The Global Black Studies Program is a systematic way of studying Black people in the world - such as their history, culture, sociology, art, politics, education, and religion. It is a study of Black experiences and the effect of societies on them and their effect within societies. This study aims to, among other things, help eradicate many racial stereotypes. Global Black Studies implements history, family structure, social and economic pressures, stereotypes, and gender relationships. Devoted to the exploration and analysis of the history and culture of Black people in North America, South and Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and Africa, Global Black Studies defines the Black experience from a Black-centered perspective, illuminates the contribution of Black people to world culture, and corrects a traditional approach to the study of world history that has tended to bypass the African Diaspora experience. Global Black Studies centers the experiences, voices, and research of Black people as a way to challenge dominant narratives. In short, our research and teaching covers pre- and post-colonial Africa and the African Diaspora in its multiple regions.
