Description
This is a survey course for Africana studies. An Afrocentric approach will be used to review the eight basic subject areas of the multidisciplinary focus; black history, black religion, black creative productions, black politics, black economics, black social organizations, black psychology and black education. Two alternative views will be pursued; a theoretical review of the literature and a summation of the practical experiences of black life.
