This course will: (1) introduce students with 19th century ethnology, (2) explore the various accounts of the sexual violence of Black men during slavery and the Jim Crow period by white men and women, (3) utilize empirical findings concerning Black males’ actual gender attitudes and activism concerning fatherhood in the20th and 21st century, and (4) present the various terms and theories found within the literature as applied to the situation of Black males, such as social dominance theory, C.R.I.S.H.I.S. (Constructed Racialized Identity Sustained Hegemonically In Systems), RBF (Racial Battle Fatigue).
