Research and Best Practice

We engage in cutting-edge research that creates new narratives about the African Diaspora, its historical contributions to the human family, and its contemporary triumphs and challenges. ADC scholars are thought-partners that aim to influence national and global conversations and shape policies that impact the African Diaspora.
