The Cambridge University Afro-Americans Society (AFRAM) is dedicated to the celebration, empowerment, and advancement of people of African descent with historical roots in North and South America.
Within an institution that historically excluded Black students from pursuing higher education, we envision a flourishing community of Black scholars of North and South American heritage at the University of Cambridge. As a student organised society, AFRAM will promote knowledge sharing, community engagement, and professional development to enrich the undergraduate and postgraduate training experience. In collaboration with other societies that centre Black, Latine, and Indigeneous students at Cambridge, we will support the recruitment and retention of students, inclusive of students who are descendants of slavery, through mentorship and the creation of culturally affirming spaces that will promote a sense of belonging.
We welcome all who are interested in the collective advancement of Afro-American scholars.
