The Long(er) Civil Rights Movement: From Emancipation to Black Lives Matter
9 units (3-0-6)  | third term
Taking historian Jacqueline Dowd Hall's call to expand the chronology of the civil rights narrative rather generously, this course explores African American freedom struggles over a period bookended by emancipation and the Black Lives Matter movement. Through an analysis of a wide array of historical sources, the course will also examine topics such as Reconstruction, the rise of Jim Crow, the Great Migration, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, Northern and Western segregation, and mass incarceration.
