African-American Writing after 1960: from Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter
Wednesday mornings (1, 8, 15, 22 November).

This exciting course looks at core texts representing a significant moment of black writing in America:
James Baldwin, Another Country (1962)
Amiri Baraka, Poetry selections (1970s-1980s)
Toni Morrison, Jazz (1992)
Claudia Rankine, Citizen: An American Lyric (2014)

The tutor, Claire Hurley, is highly recommended by Dr Michael Collins, Senior Lecturer in American Literature. He said: “Claire’s knowledge and understanding of the literature and politics of the late 20th-century US is simply extraordinary. She is one of the most talented, original and passionate lecturers working in her field and student feedback confirms that.”
