Tenant Highlight: African and African American Studies Research and Resource Center

Entrance to the Paul Robeson Room

Come on in!

The African and African American Studies Research and Resource Center personnel facilitate new ways for Mason students to learn about the African diaspora. Located in Room 240A of the JC, it is also known as the Paul Robeson Room.

The center assists students, faculty, staff and the community in finding resources and information.

Students often have to address issues related to African and African American Studies as part of their academic and community involvements. A list of research resources is located here.

Initiatives include the Lost and Found research, which encourages the documentation of the lives of “forgotten” people in the Northern Virginia area. More information about the Lost and Found can be located here.

The Paul Robeson calendar of events is available here: http://aaas.gmu.edu/robeson_schedule

Interesting fact: We are “Rich in tradition. Radical in spirit.”

Mika’il A. Petin curates the center.
