HIST 2700 - The African American Experience (3)

A chronological and thematic study of the history of African Americans in the United States from fifteenth-century West Africa to the present, paying particular attention to the impact Africans and their descendants have had on the creation of American society and their sustained efforts to obtain equality. Students enrolled in the course will use an examination of the lives and writings of African American authors, sources, and scholars as the primary lens to understand the significant events, themes, and experiences of the descendants of the enslaved Africans brought to the United States. May be applied toward the History requirement of the General Education Core.
