Bayard Rustin Education Bldg., Room 1963
Course Description
This course is an introduction to the histories of African-Americans for those who talk favorably about “departed” black heroes like Ben Carson but find it difficult to recognize a black president. This course is for people who praise themselves at prayer breakfasts, habitually put a “the” in front of “blacks” and make history by late-night tweeting at “Saturday Night Live” characters. If you know more about the biographies of Monica, Rachel and Ross from the sitcom “Friends” than of Martin (Luther King, Jr.), Harriet (Tubman) and Rosa (Parks), this course is also for you. After taking this course you will be able to have dinner with the cast of “Hamilton” and drop the words Frederick Douglass into casual conversation as if you know who he is.
Please note: Guns are not permitted in college as campus police are sufficiently equipped to deal with grizzly bears.
Academic Integrity
Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Academic dishonesty includes alternative truths, plagiarism, tampering with evidence and hiding tax returns.
Join the conversation later on Andre Perry’s radio show, “Free College,” hosted Tuesdays on WBOK1230 in New Orleans at 3pm Central/4pm Eastern 504.260.9265.
