The African American Studies program is offering a new Special Topics course in the 2018 Spring semester, AAS 250: Pulpits in Protest. This course will cover four major social movements involving African Americans and the protest speeches, sermons, and songs given by women and men from the Black Church and beyond. It will examine how rhetoric can be used to oppose oppression and bring about social change. There will be an emphasis on the ideas of black social thought within the black church, political protest, and the speeches, sermons, and songs given in a particular movement with efforts to initiate social change. The class will be held on Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. Register now!
