The Africana Studies Program (formerly Afro-American Studies), created in 1969, is a multidisciplinary academic, co-curricular program designed to bring the scholarly approaches and disciplines to bear on an understanding of African-American life. The program runs lecture series, maintains a library and resource center, and functions as a clearinghouse for local community groups interested in African-American history. The first director of the program was Reginald Lewis.

The collection contains annual reports, correspondence, files relating to events sponsored by the program, especially the John Brown Russwurm and Albert C. Boothby Lecture series, files concerning the divestment of the College's investments in South Africa, and a 1976 survey of New England College Black Studies Programs.

Series Description:

This series includes reports of the Committee on Afro-American Studies, reports of the director, and accompanying information concerning meetings. The series also includes a report of the Black Professor Emeritus Project, a proposed program sponsored jointly with Bates and Colby, in which retired African-American professors would be invited to each of the three schools on a semester or yearly basis to participate in seminars and share their life experiences. This program was never instituted.
