African American Communication and Culture Division

African American Communication and Culture Division logo


The African American Communication and Culture Division’s purpose is to promote substantive scholarship, creative and innovative teaching, and improved practice of communication about the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora. We work in conjunction with the Black Caucus from which the division stemmed. Members of the division are usually members of the caucus and are from various ethnic backgrounds that have a genuine interest in attending to issues that impact the people of the African Diaspora.
