AFR 200D - Introduction to Africana Studies, 3 credit hours


This course will introduce students to the study of African societies through the lens of the legacy of the slave trade, colonial rule, and national development since independence, with special focus on West Africa. Contemporary African politics, economies, and the emerging role of select countries in global politics will be examined. The contemporary social, economic, and political status of Africans and descendants of the African diaspora in the Western Hemisphere will be analyzed in this historical context, with special attention to the diaspora communities in the U.S.
