Description

From the Birmingham jail in which Martin Luther King, Jr. voiced his commitment to civil rights through an insight that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" to rural Kenya, where Wangari Maathai's Green Belt Movement planted not only trees but "seeds of freedom," advocacy for social justice and advocacy for environmental justice have mirrored and contested one another over the last century. Drawing on African American studies, post-colonial studies, and environmental history and climate justice, this course will explore how the intertwining of political and environmental movements redefines activism in the age of climate change, which geologists have termed the Anthropocene (or era of man).

Course Requirements:

Course requirements include three directed essays, bi-weekly response papers/canvas posts, and a final group research presentation.
