The Department of Black and Latino Studies
The discipline of Black and Latino Studies explores the social, political, cultural, and economic history, as well as the experiences and the realities of Black and Latino peoples throughout the world, from ancient to modern times.
Some of the main themes include: justice; racism and discrimination; the rural and urban experience; migration processes; work and employment; community economic development; micro-enterprise; small business development; nonprofit organizations; the development of community; inter-ethnic relations; the role of the state; social and public policy; cultural production; literature; the arts; racial and ethnic identity; and media portrayals.
Our courses use research materials generated in the various academic disciplines and inter-disciplinary texts and approaches.
