AFST 24000 - Black Women in America 1619-1960s

Course Credit: 1
Black Women in America from 1619 through the 1960s This class focuses upon the intersectionality of oppressions black women experienced in America from earliest times through the Civil Rights Movement. It examines the exploitation of their labor to foster U.S. capitalism, patterns of their disenfranchisement by social, cultural, and political institutions, as well as the creation of negative images and stereotypes to justify their exclusion, and it explores how African American women historically responded to and resisted these interlocking oppressions. Prerequisite(s): AFST-10000, or permission of instructor Spring. [C, HSS]
