HIST 307 - Women in the Modern Civil Rights Movement (4)


Students will study the Black Freedom Struggle in the United States from the perspective of the women who lead and joined the movement. Students will examine new notions of leadership and politics and new perspectives on organizing strategies. We will study the significance of gender differences as well as the significance of sexuality and class differences within the movement. Student will also examine relations among diverse groups of women in the movement in order to understand the impact of inter-racialism within the black freedom struggle. Students will engage with a wide range of sources and have the opportunity to conduct research in primary and secondary sources. See department chair.
