  • AFS 325: Civil Rights and Black Power

    Undergraduate 3 credits

    Prerequisite: U3 or U4 standing Advisory Prerequisite: HIS 104 or AFS 101 or 102

    DEC: K&4 SBC: SBS+

    The course considers how the 'long civil rights movement' and century-long struggles for Black Power were interwined movements, rather than conventional narratives that conceive them as being opposed to one another. The course will therefore span the whole of the twentieth century, beginning with the founding of the United Negro Improvement Association and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and it will conclude with the turn from civil rights to economic justice, Black political empowerment, and campaigns against police brutality. Offered as both AFS 325 and HIS 325.
