HIS 460 BLACK FREEDOM STRUGGLE,1946-68
This seminar examines the history of the modern civil rights movement. In addition to traditional leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this course explores the contributions of lesser-known figures such as Ella Baker, and the impact of local movements. This course studies civil rights activity in northern cities, and examines the tensions of class, "black middle-class respectability," and gender in the black community.
