AAST 219 - Freedom Movements: Civil Rights and Black Power

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This course offers an analysis of the many singular and communal acts waged by Black people in the U.S. in pursuit of justice from 1955-1968 and beyond. It illuminates the philosophical, moral, political, and practical meanings of freedom as interpreted by communities, organizations and individuals. Using a host of personal testimonies, as well as important secondary works, this course considers questions of leadership, organization, tactics, goals, gender relations, politics, and the economic implications of such a critical moment in African American and U.S. history.
