AAST 216 - Lifting as We Climb: Historically Black Colleges and the Cultural Ideology of Education

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course examines 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.
