The course is designed to provide a systematic study of the history and legacy of protest movements in the United States during the decade of the 1960s. Primary and secondary materials will be used to facilitate (a) an in-depth study of major protests of the period and of the people who participated in and led the movements, (b) a comprehension of the interconnections that existed between the movements, and (c) an understanding of the legacy for post-1960s American society. Some of the topics to be discussed include student protests on college campuses, the Chicano movement, Asian American solidarity, the feminist movement, Vietnam War protests, and the Black civil rights movement.

Prerequisite: Sophomore or above standing.
