SOCI 048G. Between the “Is” and the “Ought” Black Social and Political Thought

(Cross-listed as BLST 040G )
Our study of 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, freedom fighters, poets, and the vast array of “race men and women” across the spectrum of crusades. We will explore the range of intellectual and cultural production and protest ideology/action of Blacks through the politics and social observation of the pre-emancipation period, post-emancipation liberation struggles, and the post-colonial and post-civil rights period.
