Terrell Manning's Africana Studies

Terrell Manning attended North Carolina State.  Of course he was a fixture on the North Carolina Wolfpack football team whose 2010 season was especially strong.

But it was his off field endeavors that interested me.  Terrell Manning was an Africana Studies major, a unique offering among four year institutions.

After exploring the North Carolina State website, I thought it sounded like a cool program.  It examines the contributions and experiences of people from African descent all throughout the world.  Some classes include Introduction to the African Diaspora and Black Popular Culture.  The program seems to be very popular and features a major track, minor route, and several study abroad opportunities.  The link to its description can be found here.  Makes me want to go back to college and sample some classes all over again!
