African & African American Studies 146: Black America in Transition

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2008
This course examines how changes in communities, the economy, and culture are remaking the African American experience. We will examine processes of neighborhood change and segregation as well as the impact of immigration on black communities. Gender dynamics will be a topic of attention. The course will also closely examine changing class stratification, dynamics and tensions in the black community. All of these will be set in a context of evolving group cultural expression and responses to societal racism.
