While there are multiple objectives for this upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level seminar course, one central objective for the course is to expose all students to literature and research pertaining to the Black experience in the United States in an effort to develop and refine ideas and mindsets that will foster and reflect innovate ways of thinking about how to enhance the life experiences of Black persons. That is, in the course, the primary objective is to have the course material and critical discourse influence your thinking about and actions towards or on behalf of Black persons.
