CRES 145: Black Consciousness and African Freedom


Units: 4

Black consciousness was strong among African nationalist leaders and this course will help students to analyze these leaders’ ideas for national freedom as rooted in anti-racism and anti-colonialism.

Students will cover topics such as African leaders in the US, What is Black Consciousness?, Africa and WWII, and also Women in African nationalism.
