Course Watch: University of Akron Offers Class on Black Male Issues

The first course on Black men’s history and studies in the nation will be taught this summer as a special topics course at the University of Akron (Ohio) by Dr. Zachery Williams, assistant professor of African-American history and interim director of Pan African studies at the university.

“‘African American Men’s History and Studies’ represents an innovative course that seeks to intentionally, holistically and critically examine the history and current socio-cultural realities of Black men, while interrogating the implications of that complicated history/gendered reality for public policy development, implementation and evaluation,” Williams says.
