Topics in Social Stratification (Half-Term): Urban Sociology

SOC 560/AAS 561

Info tab content
This course looks at late twentieth and twenty-first century Black urban life in the United States. We analyze the impact of social, political, and economic realities in shaping Black urban communities in the post-Civil Rights Movement era. We read about each of these areas: spatial isolation and ghetto formation; broad political economy in the 1970s and 1980s and its impact on Black communities; and developments in Black politics from electoral politics to Black Lives Matter.
