Cheyenne Dobine

Music and Communication Studies, BS
Africana Studies Minor

2021

Cheyenne wants to go into music supervision—and highlighting Black artists and POC is going to be her mission statement. To combine these two paths, Cheyenne declared a minor in Africana Studies. From her experience, she stresses the importance of building culture courses into your curriculum, as diversity is rising but still not where it should be.

Cheyenne ’s Path

“I identify as a Black woman and within my Northeastern experience I felt that something was missing within my curriculum and my community…if I don’t go to graduate school, I thought that this might be my last time to learn about Africana Studies, my culture, and my history, and I wanted to get that opportunity through the Africana Studies program.”
