Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Students in this course will engage in the study of the Black Power Movement in the 1960's and 1970's, within the narrative of Black political and cultural liberation. We will examine the historical roots, major themes, strategies, outcomes, significant Pan-African figures, and the COINTELPRO efforts used by the U.S. government determined to destroy the Black Power Movement. Students will also grapple with the international events that influenced the movement's politics of revolution, which includes the anti-colonial movement in Afrika. This course will shape students understanding of the Black Power vision of liberation and gauge its lasting impact on the Black diaspora today.
