Beyond the Classroom

Beyond the classroom students have attended: church services, movie screenings such as “Invctus”, and Sweet Honey on the Rock. The program frequently host year-long specialized series with invited lecturers, movie screenings and a chance for us to just dialogue. As a Black Studies Minor, you will be fully prepared to become a global citizen in an ever-changing world.

The minor in black studies provides a variety of opportunities designed to support students’ intellectual needs both within and beyond the classroom—from special guest speakers to movie series and community outreach. These opportunities encourage students to expand their cultural and academic horizons.

  • Students have the opportunity to have their voices heard by contributing to the Heritage Journal.
  • Students can participate in campus wide events such as the Black Women and Girls Symposium and the African Community Colloquium—which takes up various issues related to the African Diasporic peoples as experienced in Rhode Island.  This colloquium is student driven.
