Whose Lives Matter? History 4710, Race in America
"Black," "brown," "yellow," and "white" men and women have never taken "law and order"
lying down. Slavery entailed rape and other forms of violence. The enslaved fought
back in every way they could. All as slavery, and ethnic cleansing of Native Americans,
made many white men feel big and free. Such was liberty and equality. Capitalism
and emancipation have proven no less dubious. Using texts, songs, paintings, pictures,
objects, and digital artifacts, this course examines vital issues of race in relation
to class and gender, in the US over the past four hundred years.
