African American Studies: Introduction

Introduction

African American Studies (AAMS)

African American studies is a discipline that focuses squarely on the Black experience in the United States and in the African Diaspora across time and space. As an area of academic inquiry, it spreads beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries, yet it still, as Dr. Perry Hall once noted, “comprises one discreet, integral body of knowledge.”
