Course Schedule – Spring 2024 / Old Courses / SLAVERY’S ROLE IN U.S. CAPITALISTIST DEVELOPMENT
Coordinators: Richard Byrd, June Zaccone
It is impossible to understand our country without incorporating the role of slavery in its history. Slavery helped shape its institutions, legal and voting systems, labor and foreign relations, social welfare and much else.
This course will first look at that history, assess Black strategy and response, and the extent of the remaining injustice to the descendants of those enslaved.
A WEEK / WED / 10:30am to 12:00pm
