African-American Studies at the University of Montana

afam
African-American Studies (AAST) at the University of Montana connects African and African-American (including Latin America and the Caribbean) history, experiences, and perspectives with the 21st century. The goal of the African-American Studies curriculum is to develop a basic knowledge of, and appreciation for, the diverse experiences of the African diaspora, and their contributions to the nations into which they were incorporated. Through this study students will recognize that the African-American narrative connects to the core issues of nation formation, identity politics, social movements, and the liberal state.
