Dr. Gary Ford
Dr. LeRonn Brooks & Dr. Gary Ford joined the Department of Africana Studies as Assistant Professors in the Fall of 2016.
They bring to the department a rich academic combination of Africana Art and Literature, among other things, imbided with historical and cultural trajectories that will benefit our students in the coming years. We are pleased and fortunate to have them both on board.
Dr. LeRonn Brooks
Dr. Brooks teaches courses in Africana Art and Media representations, along with introducotry classes in Africana Studies; and Dr. Ford teaches courses that focus on Afrofuturism and African American women writers. Both have an interdisciplinary approach to their research and teaching interests that speak to the global comprehension of Africana peoples.
