University programs have been created with reference to a disciplinary matrix, retarding the development of appropriate theory and methods throughout Africana studies.

Fifteen leaders in the field of Africana studies provide the conceptual framework for establishing the field as a mature discipline. The focus is on four basic areas: administration and organizational structure- disciplinary matrix- Africana womanism- and cultural aesthetics. The work examines both the theory and the method of scholars in African and African-diaspora studies.
