From fashion, food and music to speech patterns and protest methods, African-American culture has had a profound effect both on America and the wider world. In this unit we survey race relations after the end of slavery, focusing on the emergence of black communities across the North and South, the spread of black music, literature and film, the history of the civil rights and black power movements and the role of race in the contemporary America.
