AFB 130 - Black Urban Poetry: From Harlem to Hip Hop

3 credit(s)
This course examines black American poets from roughly 1910 to the present who as participants and observers documented the political, economic, and sociological transitions in the industrialized urban areas of the United States. Topics to be examined include the Harlem Renaissance (1910-1930), the Chicago Black Renaissance (1930s-1950s), the Black Arts Movement (1965-1975), the Hip Hop Movement (late 1970s to present), and the links between these movements. Additional themes include race riots, lost cityscapes, and the quest for full citizenship and enfranchisement.
