A Statement From Africana Studies Faculty

“When our lived experience of theorizing is fundamentally linked to processes of self-recovery, of collective liberation, no gap exists between theory and practice.”—Audre Lorde


What are we doing?

As colleagues and teachers we are reminded of what brought us to our work, and what keeps us together with mutual respect and shared obligation to our students. 

'Living Just Enough': Virtual Exhibition
