Course Description

The year 2019 marks the three-hundred-year anniversary of when Africans were traded for "victuelle" at Jamestown. The ship, probably pirated from the islands of the Caribbean, left twenty Africans at the English settlement and sailed into oblivion after receiving food. The course will explore the history of slavery, which began before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, continue through emancipation, segregation, and two aspects of the civil rights movement: the legal challenge and the moral challenge. The course will conclude with a tour at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, exploring black contributions to Carolina history. We will use a website prepared for this course using history, art, music, poetry, literature, and videos. Lecture (plus Questions) Listening to Music or Other Audio Viewing Videos Field Trip(s)
