Minor: Black Studies
(BLST)

As a field, Black Studies grew out of liberation struggles for Black people in the United States and across the Diaspora. The minor offers opportunities for students committed to bringing to light the hidden histories, submerged thought, and radical visions of a future without racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, poverty and food insecurity, militarism, and settler colonialism. By introducing students to the formal history of the discipline of Black Studies, it allows them to pursue a broad and rigorous interdisciplinary program of study on Black thought and history.
