AFRAMER 100X - Into the Fire: The Black Intellectual, 1968-2018

If the role of the intellectual is to speak on behalf of those who are voiceless and disempowered then the black intellectual tradition arguably constitutes the original and most enduringly vital intellectual tradition in the United States. This course traces the history of that tradition from the Civil Rights Movement to the present. We will consider a broad range of works by writers, philosophers, activists, scholars, poets, and filmmakers who have sought to impel historic change, record violence, articulate political dissent, celebrate artistic and sexual freedom, and inspire radical imagination. Authors include Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Angela Davis, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Amiri Baraka, Alice Walker, Stuart Hall, Essex Hemphill, Cornel West, bell hooks, Imani Perry, Margo Jefferson, Claudia Rankine, Jesmyn Ward and Ta-Nehisi Coates, as well as films by Isaac Julien, Spike Lee, and Tanya Hamilton among others Course site: https://locator.tlt.harvard.edu/course/colgsas-207719/2018/fall/19345
