Center for Africana Studies

Center for Africana Studies



The mission of the Center for Africana Studies at Central Connecticut State University is to develop and encourage the study and teaching about Africa, African Americans, and people of African descent throughout the Diaspora. Furthermore, to use Information Technology to link isolated African American communities in the United States, Africa and the Diaspora. 

The Center emphasizes the study and the cultures of African peoples both in the Continent of Africa and throughout the world. Further, the Center offer various programs including lectures, conferences, student activities etc. that create a better understanding of African peoples in the wider social, economic, and political systems.

It is envisaged that these programs would provide additional knowledge base and address misconceptions about the contribution of Continental and Diasporan Africans to the global community.
