Description

This First Year Seminar explores the interconnections between race and democracy from both the perspective of exclusion in the ways that race worked to exclude African Americans and other nonwhite peoples, and inclusion as African Americans led an inter-generational series of struggles to expand the rights of all citizens. Exploring a variety of primary and secondary sources, from the 1619 Project to the current election season, together we will consider facets of the contradiction that lies at the heart of a “free nation” born in the midst of slavery and ongoing efforts to create a truly interracial democratic nation.
