Africana Research Center celebrates its opening

January 17, 2002

The Africana Research Center celebrated its opening with a reception at the HUB-Robeson Center.  Created primarily as a result of “The Village” 2001 student protests, the center’s mission is to promote research and scholarship that will advance the historical and contemporary understanding and enhancement of the lives of people across the African Diaspora. In addition, the center promotes an enabling environment where cultural production and discourse on diversity are nurtured to advance the research, teaching, and outreach mission of Penn State University.
