AFR 350 Sem in Afr & Afr-Amer Std

Prerequisites: AFR 222, AFR/HIS 165 (or concurrent enrollment) and junior status (or permission of instructor)

Utilizing primary and secondary source material with special attention to the United States, students will examine the African experience in the Americas from the 14th century to the present.  Movements, periods, events and individuals who represent major social, economic, and political African American thought will be surveyed.  Although this course will focus primarily on the African experience in the Americas, which includes the Caribbean, attention will also focus on the major movements for social and political justice on the continent of Africa, and the major influences on these movements.  This will also include a culminating experience which allows students to demonstrate mastery of the theories, concepts, and issues central to the field of African and African American Studies.  For juniors, this will result in either a research paper or group project.
