Course Description: The seminar takes a journey through the different theories, histories, and approaches of the Negritude and Black Consciousness Movement. It begins at the end of the nineteenth century with W.E.B. Du Bois’ THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK, proceeds to C.L.R. James and Richard Wright, revisits Sylvia Wynter and Aimé Césaire, delves into Fanon’s BLACK SKIN, WHITE MASKS and Steve Biko’s I WRITE WHAT I LIKE, and finally, arrives at present-day movements such as Black Lives Matter and Rhodes Must Fall, and the approaches they are built upon. This seminar focuses on what the colonial project generated other than oppression, exploitation and genocide, that is resistance, self-organization of blacks in Africa, the Caribbean, and the US, and theories of resistance and liberation.
