African American Social and Political Thought
Maymester, M-F 12:30-3:30 pm
Dr. Bianca Williams
Fulfills HUMAN DIVERSITY and U.S. CONTEXT Core Requirements
This Maymester course provides students with the opportunity to read and discuss W.E.B. Du Bois, Jay-Z, and Angela Davis, alongside activists such as Tim Wise and Michelle Alexander (“The New Jim Crow). The course is designed to provide an introduction to the historical and contemporary thinking, writings, and speeches of African Americans. While the texts for this course span the early 20th and 21st centuries, and were written in a particular social and political context, each piece is applicable to our lives today. Beginning with some of the most prominent critics of racism in the U.S., such as Carter G. Woodson, we end with some of the most profound anti-racist, feminist theorists of our time, Patricia Hill Collins and Melissa Harris-Perry. Throughout the semester, we will engage in lively discussion and analysis of how race and racism have changed drastically over the past one hundred years, while simultaneously remaining incredibly the same. We will analyze music videos (by artists like The Roots, Jill Scott, and Nicki Minaj) and political commentary shows (by Melissa Harris-Perry and Jon Stewart) in order to decipher how the conclusions of past theorists apply to the contemporary moment. Looking forward to seeing you!
