Freedom Dreams: Race, Gender, and Sexuality in the Black Imaginary

What is freedom? Can freedom be boundless or does it have limitations? Who can define it, and who protects it or polices it? This courses uses black feminist thought, afrofuturism, queer theory, and historical analysis to explore how Black people in the United States have imagined freedom and their varied efforts to achieve it. We will evaluate how radical imagining, speculation, and dreaming can transform institutions and individuals.
