On October 27, the department hosted a meet-and-greet with our new chair, Dr. Akinyele Umoja. GSU students, faculty, and staff visited and learned about our academic programs, our faculty, our staff, and most importantly, our new chair. Many students attended and some have expressed interest in African-American Studies as a minor or a major. This event showcased our close-knit department and our interest in the GSU student body. We hope that the event encourages more people to take advantage of what our department offers.
