Center for Black Diaspora at DePaul University
The Center for Black Diaspora at DePaul University was established in 1993. Its primary goals involve the promotion and support of the study of the Black Diaspora involving dislocation, dispersion, and migration of African and African descendant populations on the continent of Africa, to and from the Americas, Europe, the Caribbean, as well as other regions of the world, with attention to cultural, political, social encounters and exchanges. The Center's programming and activities focus on history, contemporary issues, culture, performative and creative works in global and transnational contexts. We organize and host invited talks, lecture series, colloquia, film series, photo exhibits, as well as conferences, and book discussions.
