FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Lifting as We Climb: Historically Black Colleges and the Cultural Ideology of Education, is an examination of the cultural and intellectual dynamics of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Examining their origins in the mid 19th Century abolitionist movement, this course interrogates the relationship between the academic, political and cultural mission of these institutions. Asserting HBCUs as a foundation in the development of African American leadership and community advancement, the course examines the relationship between, history, politics and the self-affirming intentionality of the HBCUs’ pedagogical mission. The policies, customs, and traditions of these institutions will serve as a point of analysis.
