In our current pandemic crisis, marked by economic instability and racial conflict, we are witnessing a new emergence of anti-Asian rhetoric and acts of violence. Given the state of the planet and our society, this course invites us to imagine alternatives to the existing order as the first step towards systemic change.

This course explores diverse issues pertinent to American athletes. The Department of History, and Race, Ethnicity and Migration Studies Program as disciplines, offer strategies to train students for a multicultural and diverse society. We will study, discuss, present, and contextualize issues, personalities, events, social forces, and historical moments that have and continue to shape American athletes. In this course chronology is circular rather than linear as we will discuss issues from a wide range of time periods. The primary focus of this course will be to examine the ways race, class, gender, politics and history concentrically impact American athletes. Although this class requires no formal prerequisite, it is recommended that students either can grasp and/or have a theoretical and historical understanding of United States and African American History.
