BWS 105 - Introduction to Black World Studies


This course offers several perspectives in examining the Black experience in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas. The course is intended to serve as an introduction to the diversity and the rich cultural heritage of peoples of African descent. Particular attention is placed on investigating discrimination, prejudice, as well as several theories of oppression. Attention is given to the social conditions of Blacks through extensive discussion of the processes that create and maintain structural inequalities in the political, economic, educational, and health institutions. In this connection, students will read both primary and interpretive texts and examine these issues in the context of a liberal arts education and black culture. (Group I) (Diversity)
