Politics and Power: Democracy and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's
GOVT 103
Fall 2006 not offered

In this course, we will study the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and the struggle for racial equality today in light of the questions and issues it raises for American ideology and democratic theory and practice. We will look at assumptions about the American political process and the distribution of power, the role of the elite and ordinary citizen, and the system's response to challenges and change, focusing in particular on how relations of power and powerlessness are played out in the larger social and political order.
