Resource of the Week: African American Politics Syllabi & Assignments

African American Politics Syllabi & Assignments

by Sherri L. Wallace, University of Louisville

This course examines the relationship between African Americans race history and the American political system via political behavior research: political socialization, organization, mobilization, leadership, voting, political parties, coalitions and interest group strategies. In this broad survey of how attributions of racial difference shape American socio-economic and political life, our purpose is to study the evolution of African American political discourse and political life to discover the ways in which this social scientific scholarship informs and advances democracy and the politics of race, class and gender in the United States.
