3 hours
This course will analyze historical and contemporary themes related to black nationalism and Afrocentricity. We will focus on historical themes (abolition, African Colonization Society, African partition, migration, black nadir, WWI, Harlem Renaissance, WWII, Pan-Africanism, independence, civil rights, Black Power movement, reparations) in connection with selected authors (Olaudah Equiano, Martin Delany, Frederick Douglass, Alexander Crummell, Edward Blyden, W.E.B. DuBois, Marcus Garvey, Kwame Nkrumah, Frantz Fanon, Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Wole Sonyinka, Kwame Appiah) to develop a contemporary critique of Pan-Africanism, negritude, and African nationalism through investigation of community and cultural authenticity.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
