Afro-American Studies | Historical Issues in Black Education
A452 | 0299 | Audrey McCluskey

The  history of black education is the history of a people’s attempt
to gain full access to the American dream. Yet , that dream often
became a  nightmare as resistance to  equal education for blacks has
been a constant in America history. This course--using  primary
documentary sources, theories of  education,  and studies of
educational leadership, and case studies -- will examine  salient
educational issues  through the lens of history, and trace them to
contemporary settings in the social , cultural, and legal
landscapes  of  our time. Particular attention will be paid to
issues of gender and social class in education.
