Black Massacres

Fall 2021

Taught By: Kenya Tyson

Section: L

CRN: 11272

Credits: 0

This interdisciplinary course will examine the legal and public policy implications of race riots and massacres perpetrated against African Americans in the United States between the Reconstruction and Prohibition eras. Over the course of the semester, students will learn more about the history of race massacres, including events such as the Wilmington Insurrection, Red Summer of 1919, and the Tulsa Race Massacre. We will also make connections between past and present instances of racial inequality, explore the role of race-based riots and violence in the greater context of American society, and examine how these events have influenced the development of legal and public policy in Contemporary society. [This ULEC is in category 1, Tools For Social Change.]
