Although this is old news, the AADS department wanted to share this 2010 NPR story about a growth in the interest of Black Studies. Published around the same time the AADS department came into existence, this interview with Dr. Elizabeth Alexander of Yale University shows we're headed in the right direction!

Please read more about this story here, which covers how Black Studies came to be considered a field of study, common concerns from parents of AFR or Black Studies majors, and even some shout-outs to prominent Black Studies writers and thinkers you may have heard of in class!
