As part of Black History Month, the department of Africana Studies at UM-Flint, along with efforts by the UM-Flint African Student Association, and with generous support from the College of Arts & Sciences, the Office of the Provost, and other university offices, presents the fourth annual Africa Week.

From February 3 - 9, 2019, we will offer a series of celebrations and activities that explore the vibrant ties that exist between Africa and its diaspora. By showcasing artists, experts, and works from across the city, state, country, and world, we hope to give individuals from our campus and community an opportunity to come together and share in the learning of culture, history, and experience. Unless otherwise noted, Africa Week events are free and open to the public.

Event information is subject to change.
