Course Credit: 1
Maximum Credit: 0
BLACK AESTHETICS This course will examine the development of the Black Aesthetic from its genesis in the 1920s, through the Black Arts Movement and into the contemporary period. Students will examine primary source documents and artistic/creative expressions from a range of disciplines (including dance, music, literature, and visual art) to identify Black performance/expressive aesthetics and to engage art as a mechanism through which culture, politics, and identity may be ascertained.
