    Historical Note

    The UCLA Center for African American Studies was established in 1969 as the Center for Afro-American Studies. As an Organized Research Unit (ORU) the Center's mission was to develop and strengthen African American Studies through five primary organizational branches: research, academic programs, library and media center, special projects, and publications. The Center supported research that (1) expands the knowledge of the history, lifestyles, and sociocultural systems of people of African descent and (2) investigates problems that have bearing on the psychological, social, and economic well being of persons of African descent.
    Renamed the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African Americans Studies at UCLA in October 2003. Research sponsored and conducted by the Bunche Center is multidisciplinary in scope and spans the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and several professional schools.
