This course is an introduction to Pan Africanism and its intersections with United States and international social movements. The course will cover the context for the development of Pan-Africanism, the history of Pan-Africanism, lessons from its successes and failures, and the organizing approach it helped to define –“making the plight of Africans in the diaspora an international issue.” We will also cover how religion and socialism has interacted Pan-Africanism and how this framework can help advance racial, economic, immigration and gender justice.
