Relations between African Americans and other diasporic groups, such as West Indians and Africans, have been characterized as tense and full of friction. Yet, people of African descent in Latin America, the U.S. and Africa have engaged each other in order to create strategies of Black uplift, discuss the conditions in which they live, and provide sources of inspiration for each other. This class will examine the circulations of cultural practices between the U.S., East Africa, and Brazil. Students will complete final presentations at the end of the semester examining Black power, hip hop, president Barack Obama, Afrocentrism, or Black television in an African diasporic perspective.
