DEPARTMENT HISTORY

Established in 1969, we are one of the oldest Black Studies departments in the United States and have offered courses that affirm the intellectual importance of research and scholarship, and their contributions to the world culture of peoples of African descent the world over since 1970.

As important, while other, similar academic programs began only as programs, Binghamton University demonstrated its commitment to curricular diversity by establishing a full-fledged department from the outset. Initially known as the Department of Afro-American Studies and later as the Department of Afro-American and African Studies, we became the Department of Africana Studies in 1994.
