AAAS 32.50 Black LGBTQ History

This course is an introduction to the study of Black LGBTQ history in the United States. We will examine a range of primary and secondary source material from the nineteenth century through the late twentieth century. This material includes documentaries, scholarship, newspaper articles, newsletters, diaries and letters. We will look at sexual relationships in the nineteenth century among slaves and free people as well as the cultures of sexual diversity and gender transgression a couple of generations after slavery that gave rise to the jazz age and the Harlem Renaissance. We will also take a look at post-war America, the Civil Rights and Black Power era for their moments of sexual expression and gender variance as well as repression. The course will continue to examine Black experience into the AIDS crisis, gay marriage debates and transgender rights movements.
