The World of the Black Panthers will invite students to examine the history and legacy of the Black Panther Party. Situating the Black Panthers within the twentieth-century Black radical tradition of resistance against both local manifestations and transnational dimensions of racial capitalism, this course will critically consider how the Party addressed intersecting oppressions of race, gender, class, sexuality, and nation through its intertwined domestic operations and international engagements. In particular, this seminar will focus on the global impact of the Party in the 1960s and beyond, most clearly evidenced by Panther iconography. In addition to honing writing skills, students will have the opportunity to conduct primary-source research and develop public humanities projects.
