HIST 200 RACE IN AMERICAN HISTORY

From the 17 th century, the issue of race has been apparent in the American dialogue. The history of those of Native-American, African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American descent has been greatly neglected in the study of U.S. history. The "master narrative" has placed emphasis on the contributions of white Americans to the nation, while those of color have been relegated to the back seat. This course is intended to make American history a multiracial history and present students with a new more inclusive dialogue about our national past. (AH)

Prerequisite: HIST 100, HIST 105, HIST 125, HIST 130, or HIST 135
