Using Black narratives as data, students will examine how Black people have experienced, interpreted, and resisted racial oppression in the United States. Attention will be given to variables (individuals, institutional and cultural formations) that have contributed to the development of resiliency in a people. We will also consider the ways in which racial oppression leaves its mark on members of oppressed and oppressor classes. In discussing the narratives, we will draw on scholarship from the fields of history, anthropology, sociology, and social psychology.
