This course introduces students to literature that engages the history of “race riots” in the United States, including uprisings of enslaved people, mob lynchings, attacks on Black-owned businesses, and protests against police brutality. Typical authors studied: Nat Turner, David Walker, Charles W. Chesnutt, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Anna Deavere Smith, Mat Johnson, and Claudia Rankine. We will also examine historical documents, recent events, popular culture artifacts, and social justice movements to contextualize these literary works.
