HIST 3120 - Alexander Hamilton: Race, Medicine, Resistance, and Resilience in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands


4 Semester Hours
HIST-3120 introduces Caribbean island life by politics and history in this crossroads of European, African, and American cultures. Using Alexander Hamilton’s experiences growing up, we see how race, class, medicine, and the environment will profoundly shaped the US and the world. In the class, students hike the rainforest, learn traditional Afro-Caribbean drumming, and kayak at night through bioluminescent waters to investigate how places, cultural practices, and physical objects connect to the resiliency of the enslaved and free black communities. Scholarship support may be available.
