Critical Black Studies (CBST)

Critical Black studies is devoted to the critical examination of the artistic, historical, literary and theoretical developments of the global Black experience. As a discipline, critical Black studies explores racial blackness and its relationship to the making of the modern world. It is a discipline that continues to grow out of the Black freedom struggle and is therefore committed to rigorous scholarship and community development, and responsibility grounded in the histories and lived experience of Black people.
