Credits: (3)
This course examines, chronologically and topically, the development of African-Americans from the post-Civil War Era to the present. Students will examine African-American responses to the legal institutionalization of segregation, including migration to the West, self-segregation, self-help, education, and the vote. Between discussions of Black participation in World Wars I and II, students will investigate the Harlem Renaissance and the development of jazz and the blues. Following a discussion of the Civil Rights Movement, the course will conclude with a discussion of Black conservativism.
