The Africana Studies Department seeks to play an integral role in building a more connected and engaged community. We host programs, symposiums, seminars and exhibits that bring people together to discuss issues, marvel at creativity, and understand our individual and collective roles in creating a healthy, vibrant, and engaged, community.

We invite you to be part of this effort. Consider making a donation to the Africana Studies Department to support our goals to build a more connected and engaged community.

We are currently fundraising for our department’s Tillman Scholarship for Africana Studies. Named after our alumnus Thomas “Malik” Tillman, the scholarship will support students who exhibit academic excellence and a spirit of community service. You can support this scholarship by clicking on the box below, entering “Tillman” in gray box at the bottom of the page, and check Tillman Scholarship for Africana Studies under the gray box.
