Established in June 1969, the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies (WCAAAS) is the research, programming, and community engagement division of the Black Studies Collective at the University of Texas at Austin. WCAAAS supports the research and programmatic initiatives of its faculty affiliates and students, collaborates with local organizations, and encourages creative work that seeks to foster social justice for people of African descent around the world. The Center exists as a lasting tribute to Dr. John Lewis Warfield, who served as former Director of the Center for African and African-American Studies and Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at UT Austin for 26 years.
