This course takes a critical look at 20th Century Black Nationalism, both historically, and more recently in the United States, and on occasion, other parts of the African Diaspora. We interrogate its meaning in different geographical spaces and how those meanings have remained static or changed over time.
This is an intensive writing course and students are required to write a major paper based mainly on primary but also secondary sources. Weekly readings are also required with oral reports. There is mandatory attendance but there are no examinations.
