As Black History Month 2024 comes to a close, The Catholic University of America recognizes the need to uplift the contributions of the African Diaspora year round. This academic year, we were pleased to launch the Africana Studies and Research program. This new minor through the Sociology department encourages students to question assumptions, deepen their thinking, lead courageously, and serve empathetically.

The Institute for the Transformation of Catholic Education (ITCE) and Classical Academic Press (CAP) are pleased to invite you to The Catholic University of America for a free lecture and book signing with Dr. Anika Prather and Dr. Angel Parham, authors of the new release The Black Intellectual Tradition.
There is a shared story that has been largely forgotten: our common heritage in the classics and the liberal arts. This heritage has united, instructed, and inspired us all—slave and free, White and Black—over the few centuries of our history as a nation. As we have in recent years collectively wandered far away from the gracious and firm tutelage of the classics, much has been lost. These works were the ancient teachers that Black leaders used to hold our nation accountable to standards that we pointed toward but so often failed to uphold. The Black Intellectual Tradition offers back to us all, as Americans, a shared relationship with our living tradition in the Greco-Roman and Christian classics.
To learn more details and register for this free event, please visit ITCE's registration page!
