This Black Protest course will be taught in the ENG 3000: Orientation course, and is being considered for a future course (contact Dr Segall)
Let's start with this video clip:
Nelson Mandela speaks with Ted Koppel at NY City College forum 1990 (after released from prison) about PLO & Arafat
Texts and Films will be from Black American, South African, and North African Authors. Comparative Histories of protest and creative analysis of texts will be the central focus.
New media links (ongoing)
It must not only be what you say, but also how you act. Here is my daughter, talking to Governor Inslee, at rally, and protesting no new children's jail in Seattle, 2015. I am teaching her to remember the names of blacks shot by the police, and her school essay is on mass incarceration. In 2016, the protest speakers at Garfield included gay and trans-gender blacks, asking for justice and equality, and a black female student speaking of identity issues and the need for self confidence as part of the liberation.
