20th Century African-American Social Movements

This course traces the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from its origins in the early 20th century through the 1960's and beyond. It focuses on the organizations that emerged to press for racial equality and the strategies they pursued to achieve their goals, from litigation and legislation to mass protest, economic self-help and racial separatism. Finally, the course examines debates over the role of race in public policy in the post-civil rights-era.
