Black Resistance in the Age of Jim Crow, 1896-1954

African Americans challenged white supremacy long before the emergence of the modern movement for civil rights. This course studies the politics of black resistance during the era of legal segregation-from Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) to Brown v. Board of Education (1954). Topics include anti-lynching, the impact of rural-to-urban and southern-to-northern migration, unionization, Garveyism, communism, the roots of black power, and the ways in which African Americans confronted the rise of a racist commercial culture.
