Black Agency and Resistance in American History: Case Study of Medicine
Wed 19 October 2016, 12:30 – 13:30 BST
Black History Month Event - Black Agency and Resistance in American History: Case Study of Medicine by Dr Stephen Mawdsley
The labour and sacrifice of African Americans was crucial in the establishment and growth of the United States, and the long African American civil rights movement. By using case studies from slavery, war, medicine, and presidential politics, we will explore the agency of African Americans and their strategies of resistance and invite international comparisons.
