Section Description

“I Can’t Breathe” has become an important chant among BlackLivesMatter activists in the United States, particularly in the wake of multiple instances of innocent lives being lost. Within recent years, the group the hardest hit has been black trans women. This introductory course addresses the representation and construction of race and the contributions of ethnically diverse writers in American literature. Our course will address issues of systemic and institutionalized racism as they intersect with sexuality, gender, and class. We will explore how the construction of a Black male identity is represented in novels, short stories, poems, and documentaries.
