illustrated brown hand holding buildings aloft

Get an intimate look into a Johns Hopkins class through Arts & Sciences Magazine. Students discuss how a recent course, Africana Studies Meets Public Health, is giving them the experience and perspective they need to reach their dreams of creating public health programs that focus on Black women, or work in global humanitarian efforts.

Robbie Shilliam, professor in the Department of Political Science, and Alexandre White, assistant professor in the Department of Sociology, co-teach the class.
