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, this 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.
