AAS 2540 - History of Injustice in the United States

Designed to give a socio-legal-historical perspective respecting the patterns of injustice in various areas of African American life. American Blacks are, of course, not the only victims of racism/injustice, but in the past they have been - by far - the largest and the most active of the country’s minorities and thus the appropriate focus for review of the law and injustice.
