ENG 208 African American Literature, 3 credits

This course examines the major African American authors in America, how their texts reflect their sense of identity, and how these texts fit into larger frameworks of American literature. The course also investigates the cultural history behind these works and issues such as stereotyping. Students who previously completed ENG 108: African American Literature may only take ENG 208 for the purposes of grade replacement, and may not receive credit for both ENG 108 and ENG 208.
