What is Blackness? Is it a monolith, or does it develop new features or identities as the African diaspora spreads to different parts of the globe? And why have thinkers written about Blackness in differing ways? We will explore the literature on race as it pertains to Blackness, including authors such as Cheikh Anta Diop, Frantz Fanon, Amilcar Cabral, Walter Rodney, and others. Students will have the opportunity to engage, study, and write about the various ways Blackness has been conceptualized.
