The Center for African Studies welcomes you to visit our YouTube channel. Here you will find videos that we upload as well as Playlists of relevant material from our partners, such as the Office of Resources for International and Area Resources and the African Studies Association. Under Channels, you will find links to videos we created for our Understanding Sudan (one and two) and Understanding the Horn of Africa curriculum projects.
Our featured videos are from our new collaborative series, Berkeley Stanford African Innovators, also known as BeSt AI. Working with our counterparts at the Stanford Center for African Studies and alumni from both UC Berkeley and Stanford, we are showcasing the innovative and entrepreneurial work of alumni across African countries.
