AST 329 - Black Resistance in the Age of Jim Crow, 1896-1954

[3 credit(s)]
African Americans challenged white supremacy long before the emergence of the modern movement for civil rights. This course studies the politics of black resistance during the era of legal segregation-from Plessy vs. Ferguson (1896) to Brown vs. Board of Education (1954). Topics will include anti-lynching, the impact of rural to urban and southern to northern migration, unionization, Garveyism, communism, the roots of black power, and the ways that African Americans confronted the rise of a racist commercial culture. Cross Listed with HIS 329.
