ENGL 318 - African-American Literature II

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 203 and ENGL 234; or consent of instructor
Many of the freedoms and rights that African-Americans enjoy today began with the historic 1954 Brown vs Board of Education ruling that outlawed segregation. Starting with this pivotal time in American history and continuing to the present, students will survey African-American poetry, drama, essays, narratives and prose fiction with close attention paid to their historical, political and cultural contexts.
