AFAM 422: Course Description [from the syllabus)
"This course examines how questions of democracy and human rights have been conceptualized in African diaspora communities in the Americas and Europe. Course materials will focus on cultural and political developments during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and their relationship to critiques of democracy that that have been developed by members of African diaspora communities. Course materials will also explore the relevance of human rights to struggles for racial, gender, and economic justice and civil rights in African diaspora communities. Special emphasis will be placed on issues such as incarceration, reproductive rights, genocide, and reparations for slavery and their relevance to African-descendant communities in Haiti, the United States, Germany, Brazil, and Colombia."
