ETHS 4410 - Socio-political Experiences of African Americans

(3 Units)
Course explores the two major phases of the Civil Rights/Black Power protest era in African American history, the social and political circumstances leading up to the movement, and the aftermath of its dissolution by a right wing, Republican backlash of the 1980s.  Course will discuss the many influential people, including many local grass roots rank-and-file activists, the varying agendas and tactics used by them, the regional (northern and southern) differences in character and agenda of the struggle, and the gender and sexual politics intertwined in and informing key, decisive moments in the struggle.
