Debating Blackness
SOC 254
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: AFAM 254

Who is black? What is blackness? What is black culture? The answers to these questions depend on whom you ask. In this course, we will address various controversies around the meaning of blackness by reviewing longstanding scholarly debates in the study of African Americans and by forcing different perspectives to engage each other. We will use these debates to develop an understanding of the concept of race and of racial relations.
