HIS-306 African American History

This course will survey African American history from precolonial Africa through the present. It will introduce students to key concepts in African American history from early beginnings in indigenous Africa through the transatlantic slave trade, the Civil War, emancipation, Reconstruction, the civil rights era, and into the present. The course will highlight major social events and processes, individuals and ideas, documents and social programs to chart the social and communal outcomes, past and present positions, and future implications for African Americans.
