ENGL 2055 - African-American Literature

Credits: 3

African American Literature studies oral and written stories of African American writers from the 18th century through the Harlem Renaissance to present times, including well-known authors like Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others. Students analyze major themes like alienation, identity, double-consciousness, racism, classism, rebellion, revolt and escape. They evaluate these works for their literary merit, becoming aware of the personal, social, artistic and literary values of African American authors; furthermore they discover connections among these stories, poems, and speeches and their own experience.
