About this Event
This course takes an ethnographic and interdisciplinary approach to mapping the historical, geographical, and socio-political trajectory of the Black Arts Movement to #blacklivesmatter by highlighting the motivations, strategies, and experiences of community organizers on the ground. The narratives of grassroots organizers from groups such as Justice 4 Trayvon Martin and those organizing for #blacklivesmatter across the United States, will provide nuance to our understanding of an international movement that we now know as Black Lives Matter. Students will be encouraged to explore their own foundations and personal stories connecting them to the Black liberation struggle past, present, and future. The course culminates with a "Community Gathering" that will feature short student documentaries of their group projects. The gathering will include a collaboration with Dartmouth Students, activists on the ground, and community members to continue to move the work of the people on the ground forward, and the work of the students outside of the classroom, and into the community.
