ENGL 4016 Reporting Civil Rights (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course explores first-hand accounts from the front lines of movements to advance social justice, from the abolitionist and anti-lynching campaigns of the 19th century and those that toppled Jim Crow, to broader issues such as prisons and poverty, immigration and education. Students will develop their knowledge of civil rights reporting history in the U.S, gain skills and practices, and learn how to apply all three in reporting and writing in core beat areas.
