Rethinking Theory in Black Studies: History (University of Illinois)

This is the third lecture in the AFRO 490 series. This lecture aims to answer two questions. First, what is history? What has been the history of the African American experience? Second, can people create a theory of Black history, and if so, how? It talks about the Eurocentrist traditional approach, and how Black History has emerged as a theoretical approach to reinterpret and challenge this perspective.
