Morehouse College in Atlanta, MLK’s alma mater and the only all-male historically black college in the country, is preparing to offer its first class on African-American LGBT history and culture.
The course came about through the efforts of the school GSA, as well as a number of professors. It will be offered in the Spring 2013 semester.
The course is expected to outline various key concepts in Black feminism and critical cultural theory and methodology. Described as “an interdisciplinary survey of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) culture and politics” in the course’s syllabus, the class will serve as an in-depth look into critical, social and cultural theory that will vastly benefit the Morehouse community.
So excited to hear this news. If anyone goes to this college and plans on taking the course, please let me know what you think!
Do they still have that dress code tho?
They do. This article has a lot more info on LGBT issues at Morehouse.
