Mission Statement

The mission of The Department of Afro-American Research Arts and Culture is to identify the global significance of the creative contributions pioneered by an international diaspora of Blackness.

Blackness as a psychological and physical imprint of being, living and learning. DAARAC serves as an educational point of reference to assist in the proud narrative of the Black experience worldwide in literature, film, photographs, memorabilia and various forms of performance art. 

Through art, an audience gains perspective and understanding of the intentions and purpose of its artists and DAARAC aims to pave the shattered grounds broken by an undying embodiment of culture and consciousness of a people who shaped history while others tirelessly worked to bury that history.

DAARAC redefines a lineage of heroic accomplishments highlighting an anthology of style through expressions of impetuous power and passages of glory and grace. In this universal lens, we afford future generations an opportunity to select new positions to fill by unearthing an endangered archive of beautiful art from a most beautiful people.
