St. Clair Drake was a Black intellectual whose work greatly contributed to the advancement of African American studies programs in Universities throughout the nation. As an anthropologist and sociologist, St. Clair Drake was known for his work in urban sociology and racism. His most notable book, Black Metropolis: A Study of Negro Life in a Northern City (1945) was a study of racial segregation, poverty, and racism in Chicago. He also founded the African and African American Studies programs at Stanford University.
The SCD Program chose this namesake to reflect the similar mission of our founder; to impact education on a national level by increasing cultural education, supporting students in accelerated courses and to enrich students' lives through giving back.
