HS 241 - African American Experiences to Reconstruction
(3 cr.) This course examines the history of the United States by looking at African American experiences up to the end of the 19th century. Using a wide array of primary materials from songs to autobiographies to speeches, in print and audiovisual forms, students explore how people of African descent conceptualized and constructed their identities and navigated their struggles against inequalities. A central theme is that people of African descent living in America created themselves under circumstances of inhumanity, exploitation and oppression. Prerequisite: one course from HS level 100; Every Third Year, Fall
