Dr. Chryl Laird was interviewed by WPR Central Time about African American voting
behavior in the 2016 presidential election.


How did the United States elect an African American president? Why is there a disproportionate concentration of African American men in state and federal prisons? How are African American women portrayed in U.S. and world media? You will find the answer to these and so many more questions in the African American Studies Program.

African American Studies is a systematic study of the racial, cultural and ethnic experiences of people of African heritage. The course of study enables students to understand national and world views of African American and African-world people in order to determine how such views have affected perceptions of self, family and community.

The African American Studies Program offers a major and minor program, and courses in African American Studies may fulfill selected college core course requirements.
