This course is an introduction to the African diaspora across time and place from ancient times to the present. While the course will focus on the histories of the African diaspora in the Americas, it will not be limited to that region. The course will examine the varied histories of diaspora for people of African descent and how these experiences have shaped their histories, cultures, and broader worlds. We will examine topics like the Transatlantic Slave Trade and comparative emancipations, the global ramifications for movements like Pan-Africanism and Black Power, and contemporary demands for reparations and abolition.
