More Than A Month Black History Series V

Thursday 16 December 2021

“Black history is more vital in our own times than ever.  Its descriptive intervention allows us to embrace the fullness of American and world history on a previously unimagined scale.

 

By allowing the voices of black women and men, icons and ordinary people, to join in our larger democratic story, we come to see how African-Americans expansively transformed the United States. The struggle for black dignity, both its triumphs and travails, offers a universal story, one that immigrants, women, people of color and LGBTQ communities can all relate to.” ~ Peniel E. Joseph

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.
