African Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania The University of Pennsylvania established its first ties to Africa with the founding of the University Museum in 1887. In 1942, the relationship was strengthened by the initiation of an African Studies Program, which introduced courses on Africa, compiled and published information on African languages, and developed a series of handbooks on African countries and regions.

African collections at Yale University The various components of the Yale University Libraries include some of the most extensive and accessible collections of Africana in North America, if not the world. The African Collection has a particularly strong focus on Anglophone southern, central, east, and west Africa; Francophone and Lusophone countries are also strongly represented and there are considerable resources on all other areas, including the Indian Ocean islands. Holdings on most southern African countries are close to exhaustive. Yale has one of the most impressive collections of indigenous-language material, particularly creative literature. The collection, while not a discrete entity, includes books, periodicals, and newspapers, as well as extensive holdings of maps, photographs, and archival materials. The Yale Divinity Library has perhaps, the largest and finest collection of Africa-related materials on the continent, and the Manuscripts and Archives center contains a singularly impressive Africana manuscript collection.

The UIMA has an extraordinary collection of African art, displayed in spacious new galleries that enable visitors to view nearly half of the 1500 works of art in the collection. Along with wooden sculpture and masks, the collection includes textiles, ceramics, metalwork, basketry, and countless other media. Most of these objects served religious, political, and social functions, and they reveal a great deal about traditional African lives and beliefs. Other works, including sculpture by contemporary African artists, provide insight into the globalization of African art.
The collection is centered on the more than 700 objects in the Stanley Collection, donated by C. Maxwell and Elizabeth Stanley of Muscatine, Iowa. The Stanley Collection includes classic examples of each major type of sub-Saharan African sculpture. The Stanleys believed that art could be a tool for understanding across cultures. They built their collection of African sculpture with the intention of donating it to the University, where it is now used to teach and inspire visitors from Iowa and beyond.
