Effective Interactions with African-American Males
Using an African-centered philosophical worldview and a racial socialization framework, this seminar will critically examine the social and emotional effects of racism on academic, occupational, cultural and relational well being of African-American males. Students will discuss relevant readings, conduct a media analysis, critique community-based research, and share self-reflections. Throughout the semester, students will be asked to analyze intervention strategies, services and programs targeting African-American males. The final project is to present an African-American male initiative that seeks to restore/develop a healthy definition of Black manhood. In addition, students will periodically discuss topics and share activities via video conference with the Psycho-educational Interactions with Black Males class offered by the Graduate School of Education and Africana Studies at University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA).
