Vincent Farrar

Chair, African American Studies Department

B.A., Harvard University; M.A., Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley

Mr. Farrar has been teaching at CCSF since 1991. He states: "Most important to me is challenging students to think about the world, the world of the past and that of the present, in ways that they may never before have; to encourage them to challenge the 'common wisdom',tradition, and orthodoxies of all kinds; to encourage the development of critical and agile minds. The specific context in which this unfolds is the study of the histories and cultures of African, Afro-Caribbean, and African American peoples." Mr. Farrar is a card-carrying member of AFT 2121. He has published "Building Technology and Settlement Planning in a West African Civilization: Precolonial Akan Cities and Towns", Edwin Mellen Press, 1996. In his leisure time, he enjoys: Music: Jazz, Classic R&B, Soul and 60's Rock and Roll; Thoroughly amateur R&B, soul, and rock and roll drumming; searching for other amateur musicians interested in making music-soul, R&B, Rock-with no dreams of fame.
