The culture, history and experience of African Americans from 1866 are the central focus of this course. As the second sequence in a two-part course, this course explores the history and evolution of life after reconstruction to the present. It includes an examination of the dynamics of culture, race, gender, social/economic status and political economy in the context of industrialization, post-industrialization, the concomitant systematic oppression of people of African descent, and the response of African Americans to these circumstances. Contemporary components of Black/African American popular culture as expressed in music, literature, film, art and the like will also be addressed.

Credits: 3 hours
