HST 219 - The Power of Black Music in America

This course studies Black American music to better understand the Black American socio-political experience from slavery to present-day and explores how Black Americans construct identity and interpret the world around them through music. This course employs critical listening and analysis of musical artists and their compositions in order to consider how music is used as a medium of education, protest, resistance and cultural affirmation. Satisfies the Individual and Society General Education requirement, and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion requirement.
