Welcome to our course website for the "Black Experience at Amherst College"! In different ways, our projects ask the question: "What does it mean to be "black" at Amherst College? We sought to illuminate the connections as well as the complexity and diversity of the experiences of students of African descent. We hope our research as a whole challenges presumptions of what blackness means because we believe there is more than one black experience at Amherst and beyond.
