BLST 064A. The New Negro Versus Jim Crow


(Cross-listed with ENGL 064A)
The first in a sequence of courses on the post-Emancipation development of African American literature, this course focuses on the Black literary florescence that began at the end of the 19th century even as the strictures and structures of the Jim Crow regime hardened. What, then, is the relationship between the birth of Jim Crow and the birth of a “New Negro”?
