The Center for Black Studies Research promotes scholarship that provides a critical synthesis of issues of race, social equality, and justice through interdisciplinary publications, conferences, colloquia, community programs, and activism. While the Center encourages a broad range of scholarship, projects encourage in-depth research in the following areas: Broadening Participation, Race and the Polictics of Space, Black Radical Tradition, Haitian Studies, Africana Religions, Engaged Scholarship, Intersectional Justice, and Previous Initiatives. Gifts to the Center support interdisciplinary research and university-campus engagement.
