Africana Studies Presents

Lasana Kazembe in 2021 production

Africana Studies Presents is a speaker and performance series that highlights Africana Studies people related to the work of the the Center for Africana Studies and Culture at IUPUI and the Africana Studies Program. The event showcases the richness, relevancy, and majesty of global Black culture as an enhancement of student experience and as a vehicle for welcoming the surrounding community.

The event promotes Africana Studies faculty research and creative activity–a forum for intellectual discourse. The event was held on the IUPUI campus but went virtual in 2020. It is held once or twice a semester and is free and open to the public.

Past Presenters have been Joseph Tucker Edmonds, Lasana Kazembe, and Kelli Morgan.
