Mission Statement

The LACC African-American Studies Program advances the College's commitment to diverse perspectives and inclusive learning environments through course offerings, faculty research, community involvement and cross-cultural collaboration. It fosters interdisciplinary study for undergraduate students by examining how people of African-American and African descent have shaped their cultures, their histories, and their politics and thus our world. As a program located in the heart of Los Angeles, we are dedicated to enhancing the learned experiences of our students through political, social and cultural action.
