Additional Details:

This course engages the complexities of racial and gender identities within black communities. We  question the concepts of manhood and womanhood and their intersection with racial constructs as categories of personhood through the critical lens of africana/african american studies and gender, women and sexuality studies. We will discuss how gender in the us is mediated by race by focusing on everyday conversations about race and gender within black communities. This class makes use  of popular culture, current events, and emphasizes the importance of  creating a democratic learning community.
