Fictions of Black Urban Life

Nijah Cunningham
African American Studies, English

Students in this course explore the transformation of urban life in the 20th and 21st centuries through an exploration of selected works by African American and African diasporic writers, artists, and intellectuals. Students discuss sociological studies, novels, poems, music, and experimental works that interrogate fictions such as urban development, revitalization, and even gentrification.
