There has been a presence of African peoples in Canada for over 400 years; however, the rich histories of African-Canadian people have been often ignored. This course examines African Canadian society and culture from the historical to contemporary period. Topics will include patterns of immigration and settlement, slavery, family, continental African and diasporic connections, identity, arts and culture, education, religion, employment, justice and the law, the media, diasporic debates, Black struggles and resistance, and African Canadian achievements. The course will be taught from a critical race and gender perspective, and will include readings about the diverse Black communities across Canada.
