Utilizing primary and secondary source material with special attention to the United States, students will examine the African experience in the Americas from the 14th century to the present. Movements, periods, events and individuals who represent major social, economic, and political African American thought will be surveyed. This will include a culminating experience which allows students to demonstrate mastery of the theories, concepts, and issues central to the field of African and African American Studies. For seniors, this will be formulated in consultation with the professor. Students will be encouraged to investigate novel areas of research and inquiry. This will be the capstone course for AFR majors.
