Africana studies examines the diverse experiences of African people worldwide, focusing especially but not exclusively on African, African American and Caribbean affairs and culture. Using the tools of the social sciences and humanities, we investigate the structures, organizations, problems and perspectives of blacks in Africa and the African Diaspora. Our mission is to advance the study and understanding of the historical as well as the contemporary connections among communities with people of African descent.
