RACE, SCHOOLING, RESISTANCE & SOVEREIGNTY:
A CHARLESTON TRAVEL COURSE

This course provides an in-depth, site-based investigation of the living legacies of African-American resistance through cultural survival (primarily Gullah Geechee traditions), education and land sovereignty. Students will visit historic sites, work alongside Charleston-based community leaders and archive-activists, and also engage with cuisine and food heritage on a family-owned, Reconstruction-era farm. Students will uncover artifacts and testimony to inform their research and artwork regarding institutionalized racism and cultural resistance.
