Habari Newsletter

Habari Newsletter

Covers of the 2009-2010 and 2007-2008 "Habari" Newsletter. These were two of the last physically printed editions.

The "Habari Newsletter" began circulating in 1984, because the African Studies program began to flourish at this time. This publication started as a text-based, newsletter for African American alumni. Initially, it primarily discussed programs on campus and contained a letter from the department director.
As time went on, the newsletter evolved. The last physical publication (pictured on the left above) was in 2009-2010, and the newsletter is now entirely virtual (and can be found here). "Habari" now features local artwork, interviews with African Studies professors and other experts, and articles on a variety of subjects-including articles that profile the fascinating places that African Studies researchers go.
