ENGL 219 - Black Rhetoric

Credit Hours: 3

In ENGL 219, students learn how members of the Black community have used symbols rhetorically to construct and reconstruct images of themselves (speeches, music, TV, film, etc.) and their communities. Black rhetoric is the study of communication and persuasion with its origins in the cultural history and lived experience of Black people. Students will be introduced to cultural frameworks rooted in African culture, as a paradigm for rhetorical analysis of Black discourse. Additionally, students will learn more about the Black public sphere and trace its roots from field songs to Black Twitter
