This course analyzes the field of public history through the lens of African American history, considering the myriad ways beyond the classroom that African American history is circulated and consumed by the general public. By examining museums, historic sites, monuments, films and documentaries, and the digital landscape, students will examine and critique how historical narratives focusing on the experiences of peoples of African descent in the United States have been constructed in public spaces.
