BLKST 225 - Black Popular Culture


Credits: 4
An examination of African American experience(s) through the lens of mainstream popular culture. We investigate sociological, historical, and theoretical perspectives for critiquing and examining topics related to African American popular culture(s), including film, music (Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, and Hip Hop), television, comedy, and minstrelsy. Students learn the ways that pop culture constructs cultural identities and stereotypes in relation to the unique contributions made by Black Americans. Students engage in community-based research where they question the value of Black Popular Culture at the college and in the city of Meadville.
