Alumni Red Book Project

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Department of African and African American Studies, formerly known as Afro-American Studies, we are partnering with the Harvard Alumni Association on a commemorative “Red Book,” featuring reflective essays by alumni, faculty, and administrators. All alumni who were instrumental in the founding of the department and alumni who concentrated in African and African American studies at the College/GSAS were invited to participate in this book.

This commemorative Red Book is a first for AAAS, (please read Harvard Magazine’s “Red Books, Raw Gems” to understand why the Red Book tradition is important). Once the Red Book is completed (available in 2021) information on how to obtain a copy will be posted here.
