FYS 043, CRN 7503
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice” – MLK. America’s history has been filled with social movements struggling for the freedom and social justice of people groups. From the African American civil rights movements, women’s liberation movements, to LGBTQ struggles for freedom and justice, there is a rich tradition in America of public dissent, civil disobedience, and legislative efforts to address personal, institutional, and social injustice. This highly interactive course will examine both historical and contemporary justice movements for African Americans, Women, and LGBTQ communities via lenses of power, access, and social dynamics. This course will also include a service learning component.
