LLS 1312 - Bring the Noise

Credits: 3 hrs.
Literature and music are a major component of any culture. In this seminar you will walk with the instructors through the history of African-Americans to see how the music and literature of each era mirror one another while at the same time reflect the climate of their respective time period.  Comparisons will be made between the slave song and the slave narrative, jazz and the Harlem Renaissance as well as Hip Hop/Rap and urban poetry.  At the end of the course, you will create a sampling of music and literature that provides a glimpse at the current issues of the African-American condition and/or summarizes your lived experiences.
