To introduce this Special Issue on "Africana Studies at the Graduate Level: A 21st Century Perspective" is both rewarding and daunting. It is rewarding in the sense that I am very much aware of the importance and significance of this area of knowledge; and to interact with my co-editor, Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans, faculty, and Africana Studies graduates who share a genuine passion for the subject matter can only improve one's knowledge base and connection to the discipline/field. However, it is an equally daunting task because it demands great fortitude to deal with the myriad of perspectives and ongoing issues related to the notion of Africana Studies in the 21st Century. Regardless of the fact that this body of knowledge continues to be contested by all and sundry, there is still something relevant, revealing, and redolent in studying and writing about peoples of African heritage, in all our obvious cultural complexities and social experiences. This is the promise of Africana Studies: to offer future generations a diverse body of knowledge that relates specifically to the culture and life of Africana peoples.
