Barack obama s hope for the future

Barack Obama’s Hope for the Future


Quotes from around the world

Nigeria: Obama's achievement can be seen not only as "a

victory for America's Democratic Party" and not only as "a

victory for America," but rather as "a triumphant, soul-

edifying victory for mankind.“

Japan: "White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant. For a long time, it

was said you had to be a 'WASP' to be in the mainstream of

U.S. politics. It was as if Obama's nomination finally ended

this long tradition. The dynamics of this shift ha[ve]

undoubtedly been driven by Americans seeking a change in

their country's politics, as well as [by] their hopes of

overcoming their history of racial conflict.”

Canada: “Democratic National Convention was, at the very

least, a superb display of American political theater."

Quotes from around the world


What do we mean by african american

This course insists that black experiences in

the Americas be understood as part of

historically and culturally interdependent

processes. It focuses on the cultural

experiences of black Diasporic peoples and

critically engages the ways in which black

communities have survived and been

transformed in the context of global

subordination.

What Do We Mean By African American?


What constitutes the americas

The Americas constitutes a shared

geographic space designating not only the

neocolonial, political and economic empires

of the United States and Canada, but also

taking into account the Caribbean and Latin

America.

What Constitutes the Americas?


Course goals

  • help students learn and identify different theoretical frameworks and key concepts as they develop an understanding of the African Diaspora in the Americas;
