Description This course offers a survey of selected aspects of the arts and humanities of African Americans from multidisciplinary perspectives. Beginning with the hope for new opportunities after the end of slavery to the 21st century, we trace the struggles and aspirations of African Americans through the historical, cultural, artistic, expressive and aesthetic dimensions of their lives in the U.S. Students will be expected to recognize and understand the critical links between Blacks' experiences as Americans and their aesthetic and cultural expressions. They will be required to critically integrate information from readings with classroom presentations and discussions. MnTC Goal 6.
