This course will explore how the civil rights movement shaped American society and redefined life for generations of Americans. Taking advantage of new scholarship, we will explore the movement’s worldwide significance and its role in the struggle for democracy and human rights; its radical vision of a world beyond color and economic inequality; and its roots in the long fight of Americans for a better life. We will ask ourselves: How far have we come? What is still to be accomplished, and why?
Eight sessions. E - $265, L - $291.50
