In this course we will read a selection of influential texts of the Black Arts Movement, a flowering of cultural production by writers, poets, artists, filmmakers, comedians, and dramatists inspired by the movement activism and demands for equality spearheaded during the era Civil Rights and Black Power of the 1960s and 1970s. During this intense period of struggle and change, many Black artists and writers grappled with the implications of this change for African American consciousness. In taking stock of a vast and complex field of discourse and cultural production on black consciousness, we will assess the impact and influence on African American art and literature on American popular culture, society, and politics.
