Spring 2010 not offered
|Course Cluster: Urban Studies|
This course will look at those factors that both encourage and hinder the formation of coalitions among communities of color around common interests. It will look at examples of successful moments when coalition politics have led to political success for racial minorities in the American political process and when animosity among these groups has been effectively exploited to decrease their strength in the political process. We will look at historical and contemporary examples of minority coalition building.
