Institute for Research in African-American Studies at Columbia University

Congratulations Columbia University in the City of New York!

Message from IRAAS director, Farah Jasmine Griffin (Dec. 1, 2018)
"This morning the Trustees of Columbia University voted, unanimously, to establish the African American and African Diaspora Studies Department. It’s been a long road, but a worthwhile journey. Grateful to generations of student activists who led the way, to the late Marcellus Blount and others who came before and had the vision, Dr. Manning Marable, who set the foundation and to the tireless efforts of current students, colleagues, staff, administrators and community supporters who put in the work. Thank you all."

Urban Justice Center

We’re thrilled to announce our new Social Justice Accelerator, a program that will help turn up to five groundbreaking ideas for social justice advocacy into fully-functioning, independent organizations, via a two-year incubation period in our office space.

For years, the UJC has nurtured independent thinkers tackling the intractable legal problems of our day. With the Social Justice Accelerator, we are formalizing this role as an incubator and looking to share our resources and expertise with new projects that could greatly benefit from them. Participants will be awarded a space to work out of in UJC’s office in downtown Manhattan, in addition to extensive support and supplies (see the application for details). Along with concrete support, shared experience and opportunities for collaboration with UJC’s other awardees and anchor projects, participants will benefit from expert guidance of mentors, consultants, instructors and colleagues. Inspired by the incredible technology entrepreneurs who have changed our world over the last two decades, we hope to become "angel investors," committing our physical and experiential resources into nurturing the next generation of social justice leaders.
