Labor Studies | The African American Worker
L290 | 5094 | Modibo
Three credit hours; 2:30-3:45 PM Thursday; SY 210. This course meets with
AFRO A400. This course offers an interdisciplinary examination of the
experiences of African-American labor (women and men) in American society.
We will examine the emergence of slavery as a labor system in the south,
migration to the industrial cities, and the making of the African-American
working-class. Lastly, we will begin to explore the effects of
deindustrialization on African-American workers and the struggles that they
experience for justice in the workplace.
