*ANTH 216 S/M/ Race, Racism and the Black Experience in the Americas (also
called Race, Racism and Health)*
ANTH 216 fulfills S/M/ requirements as well as requirements for the
Sciences major and minor (Group A elective), Anthropology major and minor,
Black Studies major and minor, American Studies major and minor, Conflict
Studies minor, Urban Studies minor, and Latin American Studies minor.

This course examines race, racism and the black experience in the Americas
from an anthropological perspective. Comparing and contrasting the lived
experiences of black people across the Americas, it discusses the
scientific and social construction of race, blackness as an individual and
social identity, and the intersection of race, gender, and class. The
course also explores the relationship between identity and the production
of cultural products such as music and religion across the Americas. Two
weeks of the course will examine how the social construction of race and
the racialization of certain groups contributes to health disparities and
health inequality. Students will learn about and understand the multiple
pathways by which racial categories and racism affect the body and health.
