Movement has been a central theme in African American history and culture. In this senior seminar, we will explore the meanings of travel — both domestic and international — in Black life and thought by investigating the visual and performing arts, sport, military service, politics, and literature.

Given LSA's year long emphasis on citizenship, we will also examine how travel extends, emboldens, and complicates African American understandings and experiences of citizenship. Students will concentrate on honing writing skills while also developing competencies in visual and cultural analysis. To this end, students will produce several brief essays, one longer paper, and at least one graphic assignment that maps African American travel.
