BLKS 200 - Introduction to Black Studies


Credit(s): 3
Lecture: 3
Non-Lecture: 0
This course will serve as an introduction to the broad field of Africana/Black studies. Inherently interdisciplinary, Africana/ Black Studies draws on the fields of history and literature, arts and material culture, as well as political science, geography, and sociology. Black Studies emerged out of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the 1960s and offers an important and compelling angle for analyzing American history and culture. In fact, Black Studies takes on directly the interconnected nature of slavery and freedom in United States history and their enduring legacies. This class will introduce students to key themes and issues in Black Studies, as well as a range of disciplinary approaches to their study. Among these are the relationships between African Americans and Africa and the Diaspora. Offered at least once in four semesters.
