HIS 112 Tracing the African American Experience

The course is an overview of the field of African American Studies. Interdisciplinary in nature, African American Studies embraces history and literature, the arts and material culture, as well as sociological, political, economic, public policy, and philosophical perspectives on the experience of people of African descent in the United States. In acknowledgment of the multiplicity of approaches inherent in African American Studies, this course will feature guest experts as well as from local national, and international organizations--in order to suggest the range of intellectual and professional study that the discipline embraces.
