Welcome to the African American Studies Department (AFR) at City Tech. Students in all three schools may enroll in AFR courses, which challenge students to think critically about a broad range of topics and issues, including but not limited to, race, gender, class, sexuality, and culture. Our courses and faculty expose students to the complexities of Africana people throughout the world. In our mission statement, we emphasize and recognize:
The African American Studies Department is designed to bring into disciplinary focus, through inter-departmental and multicultural course offerings in Liberal Arts and Sciences, the history and culture of Africans and their descendants, throughout the diaspora from antiquity to the present.
