Sobre o curso

The Modern Civil Rights Movement is a significant landmark in United States history. This movement was a struggle for human rights directly challenging the nation to extend its democratic principles to African Americans and all peoples. This course sheds light on the often overlooked strategic planning that supported the direction of the events and is told by a voice intimately involved in the organization of movement—Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. Topics include the history of the campaigns, the different coalitions and groups, philosophy and methods of nonviolent direct action, and the contemporary application of nonviolent conflict transformation. The course hosts several guest speakers, including Andrew Young, Reverend C.T. Vivian, Henry "Hank" Thomas, and Constance Curry. Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to: ● Discuss the contributions and involvement of civil rights activists and leaders in the Civil Rights Movement (CRM) campaigns in the United States. ● Examine the chronology and phases of the Movement and CRM campaigns. ● Recognize and characterize the diverse activist groups involved in the CRM. ● Discuss Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy of nonviolence from a historical perspective. ● List and define the principles and strategies of nonviolence. ● Examine organizational and social change applications related to nonviolence. ● Identify the role of nonviolence in modern activism along with additional resources to broaden knowledge of principles of nonviolence. ● Recognize the application of nonviolence theories to activism, current issues, and everyday life....

This course was wonderful! I learned so much and was able to learn more in-depth o stories and events that I knew of. Dr. LaFayette is a treasure and I look forward to hopefully meeting him one day.

My thanks to Dr. Bernard Lafayette for an interesting & helpful introduction to the history of nonviolence in the civil rights movement as well as suggestions on how this methodology, philosophy, and techniques are relevant and necessary for antiracist activism today and into the future. I recommend this course for anyone who wants to know more about nonviolent direct action, its effectiveness, and its continued pertinence. I am also grateful to Andrew Young, C. T. Vivian, Connie Curry, Dr. Carol Anderson, and all the other interviewers and guests that contributed to this interesting course.

Subject and speakers were very interesting and informative.

Technically poor. Videos wouldn't download in a timely fashion. The translations need a lot of work.

The subject seems so interesting but we need more historical information. It's nice to have a personal point of view but it is difficult to follow the process then.
