In partnership with various departments, organizations and programs within the University as well as outside organizations, Adelphi’s Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies hosts a number of exciting events for students, faculty, administrators, and neighboring communities.
Two annual lectures—the John Hope Franklin Distinguished Lecture and the James Baldwin Lecture on Literary and Social Criticism—feature some of the most prominent scholars and intellectuals of our time. Past lectures have featured:
An Annual Art Exhibit, hosted during Black History month, features works for established and emerging artists of the black experience.
An Annual Kwanzaa Festival, held on campus, is co-sponsored with Black Students United and includes exhibitions and dance performances.
Black Solidarity Day is co-sponsored with the Adelphi Student Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of colored People (NAACP).
A Scholastic Awards Ceremony held toward the end of the academic year recognizes students who attain and exhibit scholastic excellence and remarkable leadership qualities, as well as an alumnus of the program who has achieved outstanding success in their field.
