School is rapidly approaching, and while many of you will be entering into your freshman, sophomore, or junior year of college, there are a number of you who will be heading into your senior year as well.

To help all of y’all that are considering furthering your education within the realm of African-American/African Studies, here’s a list I compiled of graduate programs that allow you to further study these subjects in the United States.
