Center for African, Caribbean, and Community Development

The Center for African, Caribbean and Community Development welcomes you to explore the diverse range of cultural, educational, research and applied development initiatives in which we engage.

As an applied research and community service center associated with the Department of Africana Studies in the state's only urban university, we vigorously pursue its mission to achieve excellence in a range of scholarly and educational endeavors.

Our goal is to provide up-to-date, relevant, insightful information on the African and Caribbean Diasporas. We hope that you will find the site a useful resource.

We welcome your comments, suggestions and exchange of ideas.
