AAST 348 - The Evolution of Black Queer Performance and Storytelling: 1920’s-Now

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
With shows such as “Legendary”, films like “Moonlight”, and the rise of Black queer hip-hop performers such as Lil Nas X, recent times have shown us that Black Queer narratives are broad and multifaceted. This course will explore the art and artists that have led us to our current wave of Black Queer performance and storytelling. This course will analyze the ways in which Black Queer performance has historically pushed against political, social, and systemic barriers of oppression. It will excavate the ways in which even non-queer Black performers have benefited from Queer performance as well as understanding what it means to live at the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality.
