Description This course offers a survey of selected aspects of the arts and humanities of African Americans from multidisciplinary perspectives. Beginning with the fundamental cultural resources of African traditional roots and American slave experiences, we trace their cultural legacies through the historical, cultural, artistic, expressive and aesthetic dimensions of the lives of Black people in the U.S. through the Civil War. 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.
