About the Community
The AfroDiaspora LLC is a residential community for all Dartmouth students interested in engaging in issues specific to the AfroDiaspora and is a Design Your Own LLC during the 2016-2017 academic year. We discuss what it means to be African, African American, and Afro-Caribbean as individuals, as a community at Dartmouth, and in the world. The main purpose of our activities is to reconcile the global identity and the respective African identities and to understand the relevance of this connection in contemporary Africa and the world.
How does one participate in a global conversation, or a globalization culture, without losing touch with one's root identity? This is the major question we look to answer through a process of learning and growing together as a community. Programming such as films, potluck discussions, dinners with professors, and cultural events are hosted to better understand the AfroDiasporan identity and how it intersects with religion, gender, nationality, and race. All students interested in learning about AfroDiasporan identities are welcome.
