POLI 328 African American Politics

African Americans have historically been confronted with a number of obstacles when attempting to act in the American political system. Students will critically assess how African Americans can best overcome the obstacles in order to obtain desired policy responses from the political system. In doing so, students will explore the historical context from which these constraints arose, how they have been overcome in the past, and contemplate what factors contribute to their persistence today. Included will be investigations into the role of parties and elections, protest politics, and the Supreme Court.
