Events and Activities
Africana Studies maintains an exciting and full schedule of events with the goal of providing students and the Lafayette community with experiences that inform us about the history and cultures of the African continent and the many diverse African diaspora communities throughout the world.
Africana Studies Collaborates with the Printmaking Institute on the David L., Sr. and Helen J. Temple Visiting Lecture Series
Riley Temple, the son of David L. Sr. and Helen J. Temple, wanted to re-create experiences for Lafayette students to enjoy up-close and personal time with great writers, or visual and performing artists in honor of his parents.
