HON 102 Honors Colloquium (1)


(Freshmen)
This course will explore the historical and modern-day connections between society, race and class and those social institutions which influence such divisions. It will delve into origins of opinions and self-perceptions of elite groups within society or privilege for certain people. Emphasis will be placed on historic notions of class and present-day understanding of social status through major social institutions particularly focused upon by W.E.B. DuBois and E. Franklin Frazier - education, the Black Church/religion, politics, the Black press and Black business. Classic works as well as contemporary studies and media are used. This class seeks to train students to become well-read, understanding the world around them through accounts in the media and academic sources, how daily events impact their lives, and how they have a responsibility to instigate change.
