Primary Instructor:

This course takes up major themes of African-American history — migration, urbanization, segregation, unrest — but, with a twist. Many students, as well as scholars, associate these themes with the 20th century African-American experience, while this course argues that these issues have their origins in the early decades of the 19th century. In this antebellum urban environment many of the institutions that continue to shape the lives of Black Detroiters today — public schools, civil rights organizations, churches, fraternal order and political associations — were established by the city's earliest African-American citizens. Students will engage the traditional materials of academic history — books and articles — but they will spend most the semester engaging with primary historical sources and GIS technology. The seminar group will work collaborative to produce a digitized, annotated map of African-American life in Detroit between 1837 and 1861 (between statehood and the Civil War). Our research sites will include the Bentley and Clements libraries, and the Burton Library in Detroit. Students will also be asked to learn about GIS (Geographical Information Services) mapping technology and work in GIS labs to input their data
