  • Welcome to the Department of Africana Studies at Queens College.

    For more than 50 years, Africana Studies has endeavored to offer a wide range of programs and courses that explore the fascinating and complex experience of peoples of African descent with emphasis on Africa, the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. We are proud of our expanding interdisciplinary and global curriculum.

    In keeping with the standards of the field of Africana Studies, our program is committed to exploring the lived experience of Black people all over the world and committed to imagining more socially, economically, and politically just futures for all.

    Join us on this evolving journey!
