A unique facet of the AAST program is its commitment to scholarship on and service to Alabama African American communities, particularly the concerns of African-descended communities from Holt and the Westside of Tuscaloosa to the Black Belt areas of Marion, Uniontown, Greensboro, Tuskegee, Selma and Gee’s Bend. The program places emphasis on developing students’ understanding of interdisciplinary research and its centrality in African American Studies.
