I am actually an African American Studies Minor at Temple University --home of the first African American Studies PHD program-- and have found interest in the development of the African American people and how it has been so manipulated into being believed that its so stagnant. This course examines the historical and socio-cultural processes that have determined the
evolution, structure, and function of the African American family in the United States. We will
investigate how African Americans have constructed, defined, and lived family life in the face of
constant economic, political, and social oppression in ways consistent with their cultural values,
beliefs, and needs. Through scholarly, anecdotal, historical, and biographical reading materials,
film screenings, lectures, discussions, and written assignments, students will analyze the unique
strengths of and challenges to the contemporary African American family. And when applicable,
comparative analyses will be made with black families in Africa and the African diaspora.
This will be my first time actually giving this lesson; however, I am confident that by the end of this course you will be able to:
Employ an Afrocentric perspective in an examination of the topics, themes, and
issues relevant to the black family in America.
Critically engage the literature on the subject and form an articulate response to the
prevailing myths, stereotypes, and realities of the African American family.
Consider solutions to current challenges to the physical, emotional, psychological,
and spiritual well-being of the African American family.
Utilize their broad knowledge and understanding of the black family to empower their
own interpersonal family dynamics.
