10 Weeks 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 pm
This course will be a survey of speeches included in ‘Stokely Speaks: From Black Power to Pan-Africanism’. Participants will read the speeches (either portions or in entirety) to glean understanding and solutions to our contemporary problems in our community. It is critical that we examine the work of our ancestors in order to gain much needed historical context when approaching our issues. This will also provide us with insight into Kwame Ture, the person and the human rights activist in order to better understand the Black Power Movement and examples of critical analysis put forth by people of African descent.
