AFS 3220 - West Africa in Colonial America


This course will cover the cultural, social, and political background in West Africa of African-Americans. It will also treat African origins of aspects of American culture. It will provide students with the opportunity to explore the cultural, material, and social contributions of West Africans and later African Americans to the development of America from 1607 to the end of the American Revolutionary War in 1783. The course will therefore be a foundation for other courses covering African Americans, especially their experiences in America.

Credits: 3 hours
