BLST 040G. Between the “Is” and the “Ought” Black Social and Political Thought

(Cross-listed as SOCI 048G )
Our study of global Black social and political thought will include not only the pivotal scholarly texts, but also the social and political practice and cultural production of abolitionists, maroons, Pan-Africanists, club women, poets, and the vast array of “race” people across the spectrum of crusades. We will explore the range of intellectual and cultural production and protest ideology/action of Black people through the politics and social observation of the pre-emancipation period, post-emancipation liberation struggles, post-colonial and post-civil rights periods, Black feminist and Black queer theory, and more contemporary freedom fighters.
