WGST 3620 - Women of Color and Activism Course uri icon



  • Surveys the history of social activism in the United States by Women of Color with an emphasis on modes of social activism, issues that have organized specific communities of color, and issues that have crossed ethnic/racial boundaries. In order to offer students a historical understanding of how Women of Color have been marginalized, as well as how they have fought back against this marginalization, this course relies upon historical, sociological, and theoretical readings. Recommended prerequisite: WGST 2000 or WGST 2020 or WGST 2050 or WGST 2600.
