Video: Brandeis AAAS 50th anniversary commemoration

Take a trip through the history of the African and African American studies department at Brandeis, which marked its 50-year anniversary milestone with a two-day academic symposium.

The Brandeis University Department of African and African American studies at Brandeis University is one of the oldest departments of its kind in the nation. It is an interdisciplinary academic department devoted to the study of peoples of African descent from a variety of perspectives.

The mission of AAAS is to expose Brandeis students to black studies as a field and demonstrate the importance of the experience of peoples of African descent as part of a liberal arts education.

In 2019, we celebrated 50 years of excellence in and dedication to the department.
