Building upon the evolving discussions of race and racism in our society, this course consists of readings and musical tracks that tell the story of the confrontation between American political principles and the practice of racial injustice throughout our history. Applying the research methods and disciplinary perspectives of musicology, we will trace the ways that discourses on race have morphed in the United States, and we will consider the ramifications of these ideas on the endurance of racism in our society.
