HIST 316 - Special Topics: African-American Internationalism


Content and topics vary with instructor’s interests.  FALL 2017 Topic is African-American Internationalism.

This course explores the history of African American activism within an international context. Moreover, it attempts to explain how black Americans approached their struggle for equality from a transnational perspective by linking their activism within the United States with the global struggle against modern race-based inequality rooted in human bondage, land confiscation, and colonialism.  Without force of arms, political power, or financial means, African American activists, intellectuals, and spokespersons agitated for national and international governments to live up to enlightenment ideals woven into the fabric of national creeds and national identities.    May be repeatable for credit.
