“AP African American Studies will introduce a new generation of students to the amazingly rich cultural, artistic, and political contributions of African Americans,” said Trevor Packer, senior vice president of AP and instruction at the College Board to Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. “We hope it will broaden the invitation to Advanced Placement and inspire students with a fuller appreciation of the American story.”
