AFAM Faculty

Our faculty reflects the interdisciplinary focus of the department, and is drawn from Cultural Studies, Literature, History, Sociology and Ethnomusicology. Accomplished scholars, creative writers and performers, the members of the African American Studies faculty have published their works in a variety of books and journals and presented their scholarly and creative activity all over the United States and the world. They seek to foster an understanding of and appreciation for the rich traditions of the African diaspora, to advance knowledge of African American history and culture, and to develop critical awareness of the status of peoples of African descent in our interconnected global society.
