 A small program at CSU Fresno, how did it come to exist, and howdoes it relate to other programs around the country? This course will examine how the field came to be, what some of its majorideological, political, and intellectual challenges are, as well assome of its contemporary benefits. But more than the history of the field’s struggles, what are the competing perspectives in Africana Studies regarding Africana groups in America? How areBlack people’s lives viewed, analyzed, and described?In reality, Africana Studies hashighlighted the lives and histories of Black Americans and rescued many Black stories from obscurity. It hasalso helped liberate how peopleconceptualize the potentiality of their lives, giving people the institutionalmeans to re-imagine their career work in ways that complimentblack lives.In this course we will study Africana Studies’ contributions todiscourses on history, politics, religion, and many others; while watching the field’s own evolution from its Black Power erainception.
