About the Class

Black American culture underwent historic societal and institutional changes between the Civil War and the civil rights movement. This period, encompassing the Black Codes and Jim Crow laws as well as the Harlem Renaissance, was one of remarkable intellectual, social, and artistic development in the black community. Albert Barnes supported these efforts, often anonymously. This class explores this complex history and Dr. Barnes’s role in championing black culture and educational and workplace integration.
