Text

This class explores the experiences of African Americans in the U.S. with the dual focus of exploring the historical context of Black life and many of the contemporary issues facing African Americans. We cannot discuss the position of African Americans in the U.S. without critically examining race and discrimination. Race is a concept that encompasses more than a commonsense understanding; thus, it is one objective of this course to think about the historical development and current manifestations of race in the lives of African Americans. Prerequisite: Any 100-level course in Anthropology or Sociology, or permission of instructor. Three hours per week. Four semester hours. (SS, D.)
