HIS 5420 - Slavery, Race and Diaspora in the Americas

(3-0-3) Individuals of African descent have had a profound impact upon the cultural history of the Atlantic. Brought to the Americas as part of the largest coerced migration in history, Africans and their descendants have drawn upon their experiences to create enduring cultural forms that seem simultaneously to be thoroughly American and distinctly African. This course explores the history of earnest attempts to understand the diverse cultural practices of black peoples in the Americas and where those practices derived from.
