This class surveys the impact of Gandhi's theory and praxis of nonviolence on the African American Civil Rights movement in America. Gandhi and the Pan-African Congress challenged racial and ethnic stereotypes in dominant white cultures and this spread to America as well. The narrative is explored through historical and critical analyses drawing on literature and image media from 1893 to WEB Du Bois and key Black leaders culminating in Martin Luther King's civil rights struggles.
