Washington State Univ., Pullman. Dept. of Black Studies.
Problems in curriculum development in Black Studies are addressed along with suggestions on future action. A recurring theme and concern throughout the workshops was the need to set priorities for the 1980's and beyond. Course outlines and bibliographies are included in the report for: African History and Culture; Black History Before the Civil War; Black History After the Civil War; Politics of Black America; Economics of Black America; Sociology of Black America; African Literature; Afro-American Literature; Music of Black America; Black Drama; Black Visual Arts; and Afro-Americans and the Mass Media. Participant projects are also reviewed, dealing with: the state and direction of Black Studies in America; relevance of nursing; bookless course; administrative problems; a personal perspective; a community-controlled food cooperative; self-concept and the black American; the place of Black Studies in the total curriculum; and a proposal for a new course in Afro-American history. Appendices provide a list of participants, program schedules, suggested assignments, and evaluative tools, media coverage, and participant responses. (LBH)
