African American Studies

Lead Teacher: Naomi Washington

African American Studies Department Staff

The African American Studies Department, the only one of its kind in the United States, is a unique learning environment within Berkeley High School. It focuses on the African American experience relative to the national and global perspective. The humanities based courses take students on a journey through Africa’s glorious past, the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, and the African American dynamics as an integral part of the development of our nation through history, literature, language, dance, drama, and spoken word.
