The African and African American Studies Program works primarily from the African American experience outward to the African Diaspora and, ultimately, the source-head of all things African: the African continent. Our program expands by focusing on the importance of the intellectual and cultural history of the global African presence in world affairs. As an institutional citizen of Seattle and the larger northwest region, the African and African American Studies Program continues to deepen its positive impact on the state of general knowledge of the African American experience and that of the global African experience. Our goal is to make a difference in the education of 21st century global citizens.
Donations to the African and African American Studies Program fund will be used to help students achieve academic excellence, such as providing students with small grants to cover some expenses they might have when completing projects and research or attending conferences to present their work.
