Section Information for Fall 2021

This course examines the history of African American women in antebellum America, including the general experiences of enslaved women and nominally free women, as well as the lives of noted women who were involved in the public arena as orators, writers, preachers, abolitionists and women's rights activists.  The activism of prominent white women reformers who worked closely with black women in reform efforts is also a subject of study.  The course will investigate women's activism within the context of national political debates and compromises that took place over the issue of slavery and the status of free blacks. Using an intersectional perspective, students will examine the effect of gender, class and race on the development of ideologies concerning abolition, colonization, women’s rights and enslavement.

HIST 343 DL1 is a distance education section that meets synchronously. Students should expect to meet on the days and time scheduled.
