Support Black World Studies

The Black World Studies Program offers a unique opportunity for our students to gain a better understanding of the historical, social, economic and political experiences, value orientations, and cultural expressions of Africans and people of African descent in the U.S. and worldwide. BWS is committed to providing our students clear, reliable and accurate knowledge about the black diaspora as well as preparing them to meet the challenges of the new global village.

It is only through the wonderful generosity of donors to the BWS Program that we can dream of success. Please take a few minutes and consider how valuable a resource this is to our students and help us continue these efforts with a gift.
