AMH 2093 African-American History and Culture (From World War I to the Present) (Y) — 3 Credit Hours
This course is a sequential continuation of African-American History and Culture (From African Origins Through Reconstruction) with special emphasis on how the American government's reversal of sentiment caused the failure of the Reconstruction Act. It also focuses on the government's failure to enforce the 15th amendment rights of African-Americans. The course demonstrates how these two events set the stage for subsequent African-American political movements from the post reconstruction era until the present including the race riots of 1910, 1919, the Civil Rights Movement as well as the rise of Black Nationalism and cultural nationalism in America. Three contact hours.
