AFS 3130 - Radical Activism and the Black Community

This course is designed to introduce students to the role and influence of black religious leadership in movements of liberation. This course addresses issues of race, gender and violence within the cultural realities of black ministers, by blending the disciplines of history and theology. A key focus of the course is on the role and influence of the “black sermon” as a vehicle for change and protest against abusive power structures. The course is comparative in that the lives and activities of African American ministers like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And Minister Malcolm X are contrasted with that of South African ministers such as Bishop Desmond Tutu and Re. Allan Boseak.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: This course satisfies General Education Area II: Humanities.
