Section Information for Fall 2021

This course examines the history of African American women in antebellum America, both the general experiences of enslaved and nominally free women, and the lives of noted women who were involved in the public arena as orators, writers, preachers, abolitionists and women's rights activists. Within the context of the national political debates and compromises that took place on the issue of slavery and the status of free Blacks, the course employs an intersectional analysis to understand how gender, class and race dynamics shaped movements involving abolition, religion, colonization, and women’s rights.

 

WMST 315 DL1 is a distance education section. Students will be required to meet synchronously during the scheduled days/times.
