Introduction to African American Women's History
AFAM 206
Spring 2017
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 206

This course will use a broad range of materials and read across decades and disciplines to incorporate the voices and experiences of everyday black women as well as famous figures in African American women's history. Whenever possible we will use films and documentaries to round out our understanding of black women in popular culture and literature as well as in social movements and politics. Students will gain a solid foundation in the history of black women in the United States from contact to present. At the same time, students will learn to read and think critically about race, gender, and sexuality as it occurs in the lives of African American women as well as in the scholarship about them.
