WGS 393 • Readings in African American History

Unique Days Time Location Instructor


Course Description

This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the major scholarship in twentieth-century African American history. Arranged chronologically, the readings have been selected and organized to interrogate the meaning of the modern experience for African Americans. In particular, we will examine the various strategies African Americans used to resist racial oppression throughout the twentieth century. Furthermore, the concept of community will be explored and challenged as we explore contestations over gender, color, and class among African Americans in the 20th Century.
