Description: This course examines the various historical developments that arose during the "long civil rights movement" from the 1930s to the present. Students will investigate the shifting historical dynamics that African Americans confronted as they experienced, challenged, and eventually overcame Jim Crow segregation and sought an end to systemic racial discrimination. In particular, students will explore the nuanced interplay "bottom-up" and "top-down" forces played throughout the "long" black freedom struggle. They will also gain an appreciation of the movement's wide-ranging implications on other 1960s-to-present-day social and political undertakings.
