HIST 351 - African American History to 1865
(3cr) This course focuses on the lived experience of African Americans from the earliest emigrants through the legal end of slavery in 1865. It is not a course on slavery or the South; instead, it emphasizes the efforts of African Americans throughout what would become the United States to adapt, translate, modify, or create social relationships, cultural identities, economic conditions, and political standing in a world defined by an increasingly entrenched institution of slavery and changing notions of racial difference. It is a course about agency, resistance, accommodation, negotiation, freedom, suffering, and survival.
