African American history, historiography, and epistemologies within the framework of major landmarks, including the role of Africa and Africans in the making of the Atlantic World; enslavement, structural racism, and emancipation in North America; the Great Migration; civil rights struggles and meanings of freedom; and the legacies of this history in contemporary society. Underlying connecting themes include racial formation mediated by constructs of gender, sex, and sexuality; memory and diaspora; politics of representation in scholarship and popular culture; and the interplay between ?agency,? and structure in African American pasts.
