This course offers students a way to understand more fully the 19th-century historical roots of the Black Lives Matter Movement, its ideology and contemporary critique of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism, and the legal and material gains of the movement. Through a variety of online and other sources, students will carefully track the events of the mid-2000s to the present, create research models of protests, and discuss with people on the ground the kinds of citizen actions and discourses preferable in the time of COVID. Field trip(s) may be required.

Prerequisites: AAST 101.
