We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For
~ Alice Walker
The Africana Studies Program at UNM uses an interdisciplinary approach to uncover and examine the historical, political and cultural experiences of peoples of Africa and of African descent in the American Southwest, and across the globe! We are committed to encouraging students of all races and ethnicities to think critically about the function of race within individuals, institutions and societies and simultaneously facilitate heightened awareness of issues surrounding social justice and community/service.
