AFS 3010 - Black Experience: From 1866 to the Present

The Black Experience 1866 to the present will concentrate on the plight of the newly freed African-American. The development of the family in post bellum years, the Euro-American reaction to the change in status, the rise of pseudo scientific racist thought, the long-term psychological effects of slavery on both the victims and the victimizers, the search and the rise of Black Messianic leaders, the migration from the rural-agricultural South to the urban-industrialized North, the emergence of Black Nationalism-Civil Rights Movement and the non-Black backlash. AFS 3000 is highly recommended.
