Who We Are
Named for Center director Dr. John Lewis Warfield (1973-1986), himself an innovative scholar, respected teacher and community activist, the Warfield Center maintains "Doc's" commitment to an engaged academic life. In collaboration with other university departments, centers, and schools, WCAAAS offers research opportunities and programming across a broad variety of disciplines focused on Black people in Texas, the United States, and the African Diaspora including: Africa; North, South, and Central America; the Caribbean; and Europe.
WCAAAS works tenaciously to provide research and programming that encourages insurgent politics and aesthetic agency of African and African diasporic peoples. As we strive to meet these goals, the demands on our resources increase. If you believe in our mission to extend our influence nationally and internationally, do consider making a tax-deductible contribution. You would be surprised at how important your contribution can be in supporting our growing community.
