HIST 3910-02/GAST: 4910-01 Great Debates in African-American History

African American History Debate 2

Dr. Saheed. Adejumobi

We will critically examine six crucial debates in African American history since 1895.  These debates continue to impact not just the African American and Black community but the entire nation.  In certain respects, all of them are ongoing even if they are identified with a specific period in African American history.  Through these debates we will not only learn much about the major figures and questions of the time, we will also grapple with questions of race, justice, equality and fairness that impact each of us as individuals and all of us as a nation.
