AFRA 628 - Modern African American History

Credit(s): 3
Component: Discussion
This course will analyze the long and varied quest for freedom and citizenship waged by African Americans during the long twentieth century. Specifically, we will read scholarship produced primarily within the last decade to examine African American cultures and communities of resistance (with particular attention paid to issues of gender, color, and class) from Reconstruction to the present. While the course designed to introduce students to historical methodologies and historiographical debates, it also incorporates scholarship in other disciplines to encourage students to develop interdisciplinary approaches to the study of African American life.
