African American Linguists (AAL)

Promoting World Languages in the African-American Community

Please find and like us at www.facebook.com/AfricanAmericanLinguists and tell your friends who might share in our mission to do the same. Also feel free to post related photos, announcements, links to papers/presentations or information about events on our page.

Founded in 2004 by Spanish professors Tamari Jenkins and Krishauna Hines-Gaither. Since then there have been up to 80 members/supporters and dozens of students have been awarded scholarships. In 2012 the founders made the decision to transition to an online network through the use of social media. Members/network friends can come together to gain information, share research, and collaborate on projects. This facebook page will serve as a forum where language enthusiasts who are working/studying in the field of foreign languages will gain support. We hope the online network will serve as a space that builds community and promotes the AAL mission.
