AMH 2093 - African-American History and Culture (From World War I to the Present)

This course is a sequential continuation of AMH 2092, African-American History and Culture from African Origins Through Reconstruction. Special emphasis will be given to how the American government’s reversal of sentiment caused the failure of the Reconstruction Act. It also focuses on the government’s failure to enforce the 15th amendment rights of African Americans. The course demonstrates how these two events set the stage for subsequent African American political movements from the post reconstruction era until the present including the race riots of 1910, 1919 and the Civil Rights Movement, as well as the rise of Black Nationalism and cultural nationalism in America. Modern Black America reflects progress and poverty, progress and losses throughout the progressions of each president while maintaining hope for the future. African-American cultural and Intellectual movements at the end of the millennium are reflected by the African-Centered perspectives. Events such as the Million Man and Woman Marches, youth musical Hip-Hop changes, reparations movements, and the events of September 11, 2001 gives Americans a new look at themselves. Throughout the historical struggle and backlash, African Americans continue their quest for cultural identity and their place in history.
