CAAS Walking Partners
"Walking Partners" are those alumni and friends who join us in our effort to fulfill the mission of the Center for African American Studies (CAAS) Princeton University. We have borrowed the phrase from our colleague, Cornel West. Dr. West refers to his intellectual resources – those persons who inform how he thinks about and sees the world – as his "walking partners". They travel with him wherever he goes.
We like to think of our "Walking Partners" as those persons who have decided to travel with the Center on its remarkable journey to deepen our students' and fellow citizens' understanding of the histories of African Americans and the complexities of race here and around the globe.

Civic Internship Program
The Center for African American Studies has launched its inaugural summer internship program to further research in race and public policy, allowing four Princeton students to apply their knowledge of African American studies to work with The Young People's Project in Jackson, Mississippi, the Making Waves Education Program in Richmond, California, and and the International Institute for Peace at Rutgers University in Newark, NJ to confront issues of disparity in urban education. The new internship program is managed by the Pace Center for Civic Engagement. To find out more, click here.
