Africana Studies: Its Practical Relevance - October 20
What is Africana studies? What can I do with a degree in this discipline? Please join several special guests who will reflect on the role Africana studies has played in their work and lives on Wednesday, October 20, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in Bulger Communication Center 215. Guests include the chief diversity officer of M&T Bank, the convening founder of the Charter School of Inquiry, the first student to major in Africana studies at Buffalo State College, an Africana studies faculty member, and a representative of the President’s Council on Equity and Campus Diversity.
The Black perspectives of Africana studies may be the new critical language of our times, yet few people understand these perspectives and therefore cannot confidently discuss or apply them for the sake of creating a future where justice is elemental to every sector of society. Let’s come together to support our guests and work toward that future. Light refreshments will be provided. This is an event of the Anti-Racist Initiatives Subcommittee of the President’s Council on Equity and Campus Diversity; it is a part of Buffalo State’s 150th Anniversary celebration; and it is supported by the Africana Studies Interdisciplinary Unit.
