Course Description

ONLINE: From the Regulator Rebellion of the 1760s and ’70s, to the fight over slavery, to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and ’70s, religion has played a significant part in shaping local North Carolina history. Through lecture and discussion in this online course, we will explore the connection between distinctive religious attitudes and the call for social change in those three great struggles. In some cases, disparate religious attitudes fall along denominational lines; in others, they cause divisions within denominations and even congregations. Along the way, we will gain an appreciation for how our local history joined—and in some cases contributed significantly to—larger currents in American history. | Lecture + Q&A.
