This course will explore some of the nationalist movements of Black people in the USA during (roughly) the first half of the twentieth century by looking both at Black nations in fiction as well as historic nationalist movements. It will therefore highlight a form of Black activism that often remains unmentioned or marginalized in the narrative of the Civil Rights movement.
This course will be held 'life' and physically present (hopefully mentally present as well) on a biweekly basis; every other week, the students will asynchronically work through provided materials and preparations for the discussions held in the meetings. This format allows for more intense discussions and to ease the 'frontal' teaching segments, but also requires of the students to work more independently in the off weeks.
Meetings will be held on the following dates:
April 29; May 13; May 27; June 10, June 24, July 8; July 22
Sutton E. Griggs, Imperium in Imperio
Pauline Hopkins, Of One Blood
Geroge Schuyler, Black Empire
Students will be asked to read these three novels and in addition be supplied with secondary materials and historic reading.
Each participant will be asked to create short, informative content for the course due towrads the end of the course; all content will be subject to a mandatory peer review.
If needed, students can submit a Modularbeit
