GOV 381L • Race and Politics
3:30 PM-6:30 PM
This course is designed to examine the various controversies that surround the role of race in American society. In doing so, we will explore the role of race in public opinion, political institutions, political behavior, and salient public policy debates. The scope of these examinations will be both historical and contemporary. Although focusing principally on matters relating to African Americans, the logic as it applies to other racial/ethnic groups will be examined whenever appropriate.
