Cíle předmětu
This course is largely designed to introduce students to the major themes, issues, and debates in African American history and experience from the beginning of the 20th century until today through readings, lectures, film, and music. Some of the specific topics covered include the Great Migration and urbanization; the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movement; Jim Crow segregation and the civil rights and other political movement(s); racial violence, policing, and mass incarceration; black culture, popular culture, music and sports and the contemporary experience. Ultimately, students should gain an understanding of how African American lives and experience have progressed (as well as regressed) and developed in American society in the 20th and 21st centuries. Reading for this course will be based on a variety of historical material, including primary documents and modern historical works, articles, texts of speeches, works of fiction, poetry and music by African-American authors and artists. Audio and video material will also be used.
