the&nbsp;contestation for citizenship in a radicalized America, from Civil War to the Black Lives Matter Movement, from WWI to the Muslim Ban.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Inspired by Frederick Douglass&rsquo;s ideas about the role of images for American progress, topics will include: the role of aesthetics for the invention of&nbsp;race, the abolition of transatlantic slavery, the creation of and destabilization of U.S. segregation, the long Civil Rights movement, and the Black Lives Matter movement.</p> <p><a
