This article pertains to the interdisciplinary and community aspects of Black Studies which serve to maintain and strengthen this expanding academic field such that its existence will continue to be a formative part of building and sustaining Black communities. Moreover, this article exemplifies how these two components can work to empower people of African descent throughout the Diaspora with a launching point of Black Studies in academia. It incorporates both undergraduate and graduate tactics but focuses on doctoral studies programs in Black Studies and the direction in which we would like to see the field move towards. Black Studies as a field of study in the academy emerged from the expressed desires and frustrations of Black college students in the United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s in conjunction with the demands of larger communities. The development of Black Studies academic programs into full PhD granting departments have not been without contestation and irony. Countless books and articles (Asante 2003; Bobo, Hudley, and Michel 2004; Christian 2006; Conyers 2003; Davies, Gadsby, Peterson, and Williams 2003; Evans 2006; Gordon and Gordon 2005; Joyce 2004; Karenga 2002; Kershaw 2003; Marable 2000; Norment 2001; Stewart 2004) have been written about the field of Black Studies, writings ranging from the completely theoretical to the more politically pragmatic. Even now, the field's development has been a struggle for consensus in determining the character, content, and function of Black Studies.
