This course will examine the life and legacy of Malcolm X, considering him both as an historical figure whose ideas and actions were part of a specific historical moment, and as an iconic, almost mythical figure whose image continues to stand as a powerful symbol. Our focus will be on understanding Malcolm's influence on the Black Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s, when various organizations and individuals claimed to be carrying on his legacy. In addition, we will critically assess the ways in which his legacy continues to be constructed and used to represent that period of Black struggle.

Our investigation will be guided by three broad objectives. First, we will study Malcolm X's life leading up to his emergence as a national and international figure of Black resistance. Secondly, we will examine the contours and depth of his activism and its relationship to the broader African American freedom movement. This will include a close look at the various ways in which his ideas and his example as a political activist dramatically impacted the emergence of the Black Power movement following his assassination in 1965. Finally, we will analyze and interpret contemporary representations of Malcolm X in both scholarly and popular forms, allowing us to better understand his legacy and his place in narratives of African American history. Throughout the academic term, we will take care to highlight the ways that ideas and images are used to construct historical meaning – that is, to make sense of the past and its relationship to the present.

By examining key moments in African-American and Caribbean (including West Indian, Latino, and Haitian) literature, music, and film, we will gain insight into both the battles fought and the bridges built between these groups in the creation of what we know as "Black" culture and "Black" identity in the U.S. Our focus will be on the ways they have related to each other. To aid our understanding of the global context, we will also periodically review texts produced by members of the Black communities of Canada and England.

This course provides an overview introduction to the study of Africa, its people, societies, and cultures. It aims at arming the students with useful and necessary basic knowledge and tools for comprehensive studies (artistic, historical, literary, political, sociological…) of the various social components of Africa. This course will endeavor to help them sort out myths and facts about Africa from pre-historical times to the post-colonial nations. The course focuses on:

  • Overview of major social, historical, political, and cultural events and situations that shaped (and still shape) the lives of Africans in the continent;
  • Survey of major writers and their writings on African societies;
  • Discovery of cultural and artistic facets, along with social structures and ideologies of life in Africa.

The first two months of the course will be devoted to lectures, and the last month will be used for group projects on selected topics. Besides a midterm exam, students will work collegially to find relevant materials and information, and present the progress made as well as the final products during the last week of class.

The underlying analytical question for this course is "What are the possibilities and pitfalls of varied forms of African American social thought for understanding the social condition of Black Americans and providing a platform for their social progress?" In grappling with this question, will explore a range of contemporary theoretical perspectives on the social condition and social character of African Americans, including integrationism (liberal and conservative), nationalism, Afrocentricity, Black feminist thought, postmodernism, and marxism/neo-marxism. While many of the theorists who will be considered in this course are sociologists, the course literature includes contributions from a variety of other major social sciences. Through a series of examinations, short essays, and classroom discussion we will aim to understand, interpret, and critically interrogate each school of thought, and then compare and contrast them.

Social Psychology of the African family is designed to be a highly interactive course aimed at the 200-, 300-, and 400-level students in Psychology, the Center for African-American and African Studies, and other related social science and liberal arts disciplines. The principal objective of the course is to guide the students through lectures, group discussions, and individual or group information gathering to explore the true nature of traditional and contemporary psycho-dynamics of the African family. Traditional social psychology and psychoanalytic theories of the family present a deficit model of the family. This is a false representation of the African family. The family is a flexible unit that adapts deliberately to physical and psychological influences acting upon it both from within and without. In its interaction with these forces it must adapt to prevalent customs and mores. Internally, the African family must strive to come to terms with the basic biological and social bonds of its extended members, of man and woman, of mother and child, and of children and parents including grandparents. Secondly, the course is designed to assess how the African family met these needs and expectations in the past and how it is meeting them in the contemporary complex and globalized time.

. African family is rich in the emotional warmth and security of an extended family system and healthy tendencies. It is these positive characteristics that this course will explore. We will begin with the examination of psychology and the study of the African family and interpersonal interactions that strengthen the extendedness of the African family. This is followed by detailed and in-depth analysis of the environment of the African family, types of traditional African family, the function and role of kinship system, the psychology of the African marriage systems, the psychology and centrality of children in the African culture, the African child as an active agent in the family, and the African adolescent in the African World. Special emphasis will be given to the analyses of the European intrusion into the African family life through slave trade, colonialism, Western religious influence, and industrial labor. Finally, the course considers new threats to the survival of the African family system, such as HIV/AIDS, wars, hunger, and diseases. Consideration is given to the coping strategies by which the African family is surviving the stresses of social change and the demand for change.

Over 90% of European immigrants who came to America in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries were poor, illiterate, penniless, peasants and serfs who were classified as an inferior race of humans by the ruling classes of Europe. Many immigrants came as indentured servants, a state of being often resembling chattel slavery. Many came as stow-a-ways; some as prisoners sentenced to exile in the Americas, but most came searching for economic prosperity and sociopolitical freedom. All had at one time or another in their histories, been slaves or in a state of near slavery. America offered a chance to be free from the tyranny of the wealthy, the noble, the caste, and religious and sectarian violence. Shortly upon arriving, the most oppressed too often became the oppressors of Native Americans and Blacks. This course examines the transformation from freedom seekers to freedom deniers of European immigrants during this period. How could so many of those who had suffered so violently under the yoke of slavery and Europe's version of apartheid so quickly and seamlessly become racist, slavery supporting, freedom denying Americans at worst or turn a blind eye to these horrors at best? This course attempts to answer those and other questions.

Students will be required to read six short books and a few short articles, and view videos. Weekly e-mails are required. Students also will be required to lead class discussions based on the prior week's readings. The midterm assignment is an outline and annotated bibliography detailing a final research paper due at the end of the academic term.

For students who can show appropriate preparation in courses previously taken, the Center for Afroamerican and African Studies offers course credit for independent study. A full-time faculty member must agree to supervise the undertaking and to meet with the student during the term. The proposed course of study may not duplicate the material of any course regularly offered by the Center. The reading and writing requirement should be comparable to that required in a regular course for the same number of credits; and all the work must be completed by the final day of class in the term. After consultation with and approval from a CAAS faculty member, applications for independent study along with statements describing the schedule of readings and of writing assignments must be filled out. Such applications must be signed by the faculty member involved and turned in before the end of the second week of the term. It is therefore advisable to submit applications (available in 200 West Hall) in advance of the beginning of the independent study term and, upon approval, a permission number will be issued.

Problems in the Management of Work in African Organizations is an upper-level organizational psychology course that is open to 200-, 300-, and 400-level undergraduate students in Afro-American and African Studies, Management, Psychology, and other related Social Sciences and Humanities courses. The objective of the course is to explore with students through lectures, group discussions, discovery approach, and movies the macro nature of the factors that impinge on African organizations and the African system of work and by so doing discover human behavior problems and prospects in the management of African organizations that are probably causal to the underdevelopment of African organizations.

The lectures will begin with a consideration of African traditional system of work, colonial legacy in the management of work in African organizations, and then proceed to discussion of the following organizational management behaviors such as: problems of motivation, decision-making, leadership, conflict and conflict management, and human resource development and utilization in Africa. Emphasis will be laid on possible approaches to resolving these problems to enable managers of African organizations to attain efficiency and effectiveness.

Assessment of student performance in the course will include class attendance and participation, two quizzes, and a final examination. Students also will engage in profiling psychological and personality factors that contribute to the success or failure of small- and medium-sized scale business in urban area of the U.S.

A textbook is required for the course.
