Beyond the Vote: Race and American Democracy

HIST 248
Spring 2020
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AFAM 258
Certificates: Civic Engagement, Civic Engagement Minor

The ideals of civic equality enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Fourteenth Amendment have rarely applied to African Americans. Yet African Americans continue to challenge the United States to live up to its own ideals of civic equality. This course will explore the ways in which African Americans and the issue of race have shaped the twin concepts of American democracy and American citizenship from the U.S. Constitution to the present.
