African-American Writers

This course introduces students to distinguished writing by African-American writers through five eras: slavery and freedom; the new Negro Renaissance; the Harlem Renaissance; Modernism, Realism, and Naturalism, the Black Arts Era; and literature since 1975. Students will study, through texts and film, such major writers as Frederick Douglas, W.E.B. Du Bois, Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, Martin Luther King, and Toni Morrison. Slave narratives, poems, short stories, essays, letters, speeches, plays, and novels may be discussed. In addition, the effect of American and African history, economics, politics, and religion on African-American literature will be explored. Students will have an opportunity to appreciate the rich African-American vernacular and musical tradition.
