Description
This course is an introduction to the field of Africana Studies. Students will be exposed to the basics of theory in Black Studies. The works of scholars such as W.E.B. Du Bois, G. Carter Woodson, John Hope Franklin, bell hooks, and Audre Lorde, among others, will be studied to give students an intellectual and academic foundation in the field of Black/Africana studies. A combination of written texts and audiovisual media will be used in course delivery. Topics such as the Enlightenment, white supremacist violence, social justice, civil rights, Pan-Africanism, cultural nationalism, Black feminism and the Black church will be covered. The purpose is to give students a broad but deep knowledge of the forces that animate the various Black/African-American communities in the US and beyond. GE Cultures Global Competency
