Race, Rights and Power in United States History

HIS320

Study and analysis of the meaning, use, and systemization of the words and concepts of "race," "rights," and "power" within the history of the United States. In depth examination covers the public and private discourse that has inspired racism and influenced grass roots assertions of equality, contributed to civil rights legislation and, ultimately, directed the power relations established between policymakers and U.S. citizens. Undergirding the course's analytical processes is the question of why racism still exists in American society. 3 Credits (3 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): ENL111 and HIS135 or ENL111 and HIS145 or ENL111 and HIS136.
