ENGL 232 - Black Narrative

4.00 credit hours
From slave narratives to folk tales to fiction, storytelling has played a role in asserting the value of black lives and challenging oppression. Students examine black narratives as channels for creative expression and social intervention. Discussions focus on how historical contexts and literary traditions interact; how racism shapes the social map and personal experience; and how gender, sexuality and class intersect.
