AFR1501 COMMUNITY PROBLEMS SP2018

AFR1501 COMMUNITY PROBLEMS SP2018

The course relies on various theories and methods in the social sciences to analyze the challenges of the Black community. Attempts are also made to explore solutions to the problems. The focus and emphasis of the course, however, is to identify issues in the community that facilitate socioeconomic empowerment of Black people. Furthermore, institutions such as the family, marriage, and the church are analyzed throughout the semester.

AFR 2250 BLACK WOMEN IN LITERATURE  FALL 2014

AFR 2250 BLACK WOMEN IN LITERATURE FALL 2014

In this course, we will use essays, play excerpts, short stories, poems, accounts, and novel excerpts to examine the experiences of women of African descent from the sixteenth century to the present. We will consider the ways in which Black women from Phillis Wheatley and Maria Stewart to Rha Goddess and Lynn Nottage address questions about race, gender, class, and sexuality. We will also study how these writers have used various themes, such as motherhood, labor, exploitation, migration, nature, colorism, and love to examine the lives of Black women in private and/or public spaces. Handouts, museum exhibits, and films will also be used as supplemental material/support for the course.
