Center Studies African-American Politics

Researchers at the University and around the country have a new resource for interdisciplinary discussions on African-Americans in politics and society.

The Center for the Study of African-American Politics opened last fall under the direction of Fredrick Harris, associate professor of political science.

"We hope to do for the study of African-American politics what our Department of History did for the study of American slavery and what the Department of Political Science did for the study of positive political theory," Harris says.

In related news, Harris's most recent book, Something Within: Religion in African-American Political Activism, received several awards last year.

The Southern Political Science Association awarded the book the 2000 V. O. Key Award and the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion gave it the 2000 Distinguished Book Award. The National Conference of Black Political Scientists earlier selected the book for the 1999 Outstanding Book Award.
