A Title III Program of Southern University at New Orleans
Welcome to the CAAAS website!
The Center for African and African American Studies (CAAAS) of Southern University at New Orleans was formally established in 1989. As part of Southern University at New Orleans continuing and growing commitment to international and cultural studies, the Center seeks to provide innovative African and African American Studies programs in teaching, research, and public service.
We house the largest African artifacts collection in the state of Louisiana. Since Hurricane Katrina, the collection has been under intensive remediation due to damage from the flood waters. We are happy to announce that the collection has been nearly restored and has been transferred to Building 34 on SUNO's Lake Campus.
For more information, please contact our office at 504-286-5006 or email@example.com.
>The Center is an official affiliate of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, which was founded in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson.
