ALS 264 Jim Crow to Black Power

3 s.h.

This course explores the social, political, cultural, labor, and gender history of African Americans since 1865. Through the analysis of primary and secondary sources, students examine: black women's, men's, and children's experiences during and after Reconstruction; the lives of blacks in the Jim Crow South and those who migrated North and West; racial violence and anti-racist activism; black literature, music, and political thought; African American participation in U.S. government wars; the mid-20th century Civil Rights Movement; the urban rebellions of the 1960s; pan-Africanism; black feminism; and the Black Power Movement. Major themes include: African American survival under and resistance to institutional oppression; alliances and interactions with white and non-black people of color; class, gender, sexuality and political conflict among blacks; and personal identity, family, and community formation. By the end of the course, students gain an understanding of the various ways in which African Americans envisioned and pursued freedom as well as resisted efforts to limit or wrest freedom from them.
