Please Announce this Course to Your Students
Afro 3910 (Section 1)
Tuesdays and Thursdays
Blegen Hall 330
Instructor: Yuichiro Onishi
This course introduces the concept of Black internationalism as political theory to unpack the dynamics of the Black
Freedom Movement in the twentieth century. It is conceived as a reading-intensive seminar on Black radicalism and
internationalism, exploring how leading Afrodiasporic intellectual-activists responded to such world historic developments as European colonialism in Africa, the Americas, and Asia, U.S. imperial ascent and expansion, two World Wars and the Cold War, and African independence movements. An emphasis is on how these Afrodiasporic intellectualactivists, as well as leading contemporary scholars of Black radicalism have framed the study of race and nation, especially as it relates to a critique of colonialism, imperialism, and liberalism to engender
new analytic, theoretical, and political possibilities.
One of the course requirements is that students lead and facilitate class discussions. Students who are interested in the international study of African American history, Black radicalism, and social movements are encouraged to take this course.
