Description

This lower division history course is designed to explore key themes in African American history, beginning with enslavement and ending with the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States. The course will be chronologically and thematically organized. Seven chronological periods will be explored in approximately two-week intervals, and include examinations of enslavement, emancipation, post-emancipation, migration, civil rights, affirmative action, and diversity, equity and inclusion. At the same time, the course will expose you to historical dimensions of African American culture, social organizations, politics, religion, labor, mental health, and family dynamics, among other themes.

Through a variety of formats, you will be asked to help ensure the success of this course. As a class, we will examine monographs, databases, original documents, novels and other sources that allow us to consider and reconsider African American history. Through individual and group projects and assignments, you will be invited to take an active role in the class and its instruction.

Finally, I envision you as co-architects of the course. As a result, if there are elements you want added, I will pause at the end of each class to discuss methods for adjusting the syllabus in real time. Also see History Department policies on plagiarism, academic integrity and grade grievances.

Course Requirements:

Assessment will derive from your performances on exams, short presentations, short paper assignments, and participation in class discussions.

Class Format:

To advance your learning and knowledge acquisition, the course will combine faculty lectures, group discussions, and class projects.
