The content will focus on the links between African Studies and contemporary racial justice struggles in the US as well as examine the potential for expanding Africana Studies in Illinois community colleges. The event is jointly organized by CAS, Department of African American Studies, and the Program of African Studies at Northwestern University as part of a Title VI grant.
