290A: Tps:Malcolm and Martin

Tps:Malcolm and Martin

The course explores the religious dimensions in the life, philosophy, work of these two iconic figures, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., whose lives were deeply embedded in the soil of religion and the modern civil rights movement. It draws on primary and secondary source materials to emphasize the force of religion in Malcolm and Martin's consciousness, and how it affected their world, families, the black struggle for emancipation, and how, as they stood between chaos and community, they imagined a more inclusive America and world.
