Learn what you have always wanted to know in an intimate and positive space!
This interactive ten week webinar series will allow Black lives to speak, inspire, and instruct our way forward. Anyone interested in understanding the contemporary fight for racial justice, will not want to miss it. This webinar series will pay particular attention to the ways in which Black people have resisted forces that have marginalized and dehumanize them, while helping build a dynamic society based upon cultural pluralism. We will begin with pre-colonial Africa, and the trans-Atlantic slave trade, American slavery, emancipation, and reconstruction eras. We will then explore Jim Crow segregation, World War I, the Great Depression, New Deal, Harlem and Chicago Renaissances, and World II. We will conclude with the civil rights, Hip Hop, Barack Obama, and Black Lives Matter generations.
Throughout the course, we will examine migration processes, Black organizations, leaders, and the roles faith, class, gender, and sexual orientation have played within Black communities, and the emergence of Black culture as a powerful force in global society.
