HIST 362 - The Civil Rights - Black Power Era in U.S. History


This course examines movements for civil rights and Black Power in the United States and their far-reaching effects. It explores black activism in the North and South, from the labor-led activism of the 1930s through the demise of Black Power in the 1970s. We pay special attention to the years from 1954 to 1965, but view well-known figures like Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from new perspectives. Throughout, the course will interrogate the perspectives of both the participants and the historians who have written their stories about the time, space, issues, and strategy that define our understanding of the modern black freedom struggle.
