We will examine the concept of race through the works of philosophers, historians, and Southern writers. The concept, as a social construction, can be studied in its political and cultural settings. Through slavery, race has been a central feature in the literature of Southern writers. Among the latter, we will read works by Faulkner, Cather, and Twain. In history, we will look at the legacy of the Supreme Court’s “Brown Decision” integrating public schools, and the cultural legacy of the “Great Migration” of African-Americans from the South to the North, particularly from Birmingham to Pittsburgh.
