Description: The dialogue among Africans, African-Americans, and other peoples of African descent rest on their common experiences of oppression, liberation, and cultural exchanges, experiences that have turned the Atlantic from a line of division into a dynamic bridge. This course seeks to critically investigate the shared destinies of African peoples and peoples of the African descent throughout the world. Thus, while acknowledging the centrality of the African-American experience within the Black Diaspora, this course argues that this centrality requires a critical investigation of the representation of Black America in the cultural productions of Africans, Haitians, Caribbeans and Black Europe. The Reading list include Maryse Condé, Lorraine Hansberry, Alice Walker, Paule Marshall, and Ngugi was Thiongo.
