About the Class

Black American culture underwent massive change between the Civil War and the civil rights movement. This particular period—encompassing Jim Crow, the Industrial Revolution, and the Harlem Renaissance—was one of remarkable intellectual, social, and artistic development in the black community. This workshop considers this complex history while emphasizing Dr. Barnes’s role in championing black culture and education.

Capacity: 50
