CHIST 3250 Black/Brown Power! Rethinking the Civil Rights Movement

This course encourages students to reconsider the dominant narrative of the civil rights movement. Paying close attention to the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality, we examine the movement's early origins in the 1930s - 1940s, through the classical period of nonviolent direct action protest, to Black Power and urban politics of the 1970s - 1980s, to mass incarceration and contemporary politics in the age of Black Lives Matter.
