Title The Black Woman
Credits 3.0
Distribution DIII
Prerequisites SOC201 or permission of Department Chairperson


The course explores the socio-economic institutions which have helped shape the situation of the Black woman in the United States and considers the importance of class, race and gender in this process. Because of the relationship of the Black woman to the Black family and Black community, any discussion of the Black woman is incomplete without addressing these two institutions. Emphasis will also be put on the Black woman in Africa and the Caribbean. Three lecture hours per week. Offered in alternate years.
