In April 2017, the Center for African Studies at Howard University became an official partner for the event & webcast series "Conversations with African Poets and Writers", a project of The Library of Congress - African and Middle Eastern Division. This series presents interviews with current African diaspora writers committed to the literature of continental and diasporic Africa (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, literary criticism) and readings from their written works. Authors/interviewees include both established and highly talented ‘new’ and emerging writers. 

 The African-American Historical Linkages with South Africa Project - This documentary editing project focuses on the shared experiences with white domination and segregation of African Americans and Africans in South Africa. The project's co-directors are Robert Edgar (Dept. of African Studies, Howard University) and David Anthony (Dept. of History, University of California).
