The History of the African Diaspora Certificate

The African Diaspora constitutes one of the largest and most consequential migrations in the history of mankind. This forced migration of over 10 million human beings transformed many areas of Africa and the Americas. This certificate program recognizes the significance of this historical process and its enduring importance as the subject of study. Students are called upon to examine the Diaspora in its comparative perspective by focusing on the history of Africa, the United States and Latin America.
