HIST 112 - African American History to 1865


This course introduces students to the most important events and issues African Americans confronted as they struggled for equality and “freedom” in the United States prior to 1865. We will analyze and discuss the black experience using a variety of sources. Topics include the Atlantic slave trade, evolution of African American communities and culture, the free black community, the distinct experience of black women, and the antebellum black protest tradition. Through the use of class discussions, lectures, and multimedia presentations, we will learn about the diverse and complex history of African Americans.
