Alkalimat talks about methods for production of thought in Black studies. He outlines them as epistemology, sociology, history and comparative. He then talks about the D-7 approach to answering questions. This approach involves defining the problem, gathering data, digitizing information, discovering the problem, designing a response, distributing your findings, and making a difference. <br/><br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>Department of African American Studies, and Online & Continuing Education <br/> <i>Course Description: </i>This course is an introduction to various theories and methodologies rising out of the study of the Black world based on African American intellectual traditions. 45 years after Black Power posed a challenge to thinking by and about the African American experience it is necessary to rethink this legacy of changing conciousness. This is both a look at the theoretical formulations in the academic field of Black Studies, but more importantly it is thinking about how we the people can understand and be more self determining about our consciousness and how we can reorient ourselves to the fight for freedom. Now as then, we have work to do.
