As early as the colonial area, cities have included significant numbers of people of African descent within their borders. By the twentieth century, war and mass migration had transformed African Americans into a predominantly urban people. This course examines a variety of urban areas in the United States, delineating how the opportunities and obstacles ofthese spaces have shaped African American life and culture from the colonial era to the present.
