The mission of the Center for Africana Studies at
Central Connecticut State University is to develop and encourage the
study and teaching about Africa, African Americans, and people of
African descent throughout the Diaspora. Furthermore, to use Information
Technology to link isolated African American communities in the United
States, Africa and the Diaspora.
The Center emphasizes the study and the cultures of African peoples
both in the Continent of Africa and throughout the world. Further,
the Center offer various programs including lectures, conferences,
student activities etc. that create a better understanding of African
peoples in the wider social, economic, and political systems.
It is envisaged that these programs would provide
additional knowledge base and address misconceptions about the contribution
of Continental and Diasporan Africans to the global community.
