This section will focus on texts--graphic memoirs, poetry, novels, plays--that respond to, critique, reflect, or extend Dr. King's idea of The Beloved Community. We will read seminal works by King, John Lewis, and James Baldwin, as well as very contemporary works. In addition to individual writing assignments, students will be able to choose an experiential learning project that involves writing a collaboratively-researched essay or podcast submission to The Atlanta Voice newspaper or designing exhibit banners reflecting Athens' African American histories.
