Morehouse College Launches LGBT College Course


The prestigious Morehouse College has been confronted about homosexuality on the campus many times throughout their institution’s history, one notable instance by our own magazine:

Now, it’s being reported that Morehouse College will be launching a new LGBT course that will focus on LGBT pop culture, politics and social structures.

Here’s how Morehouse’s Maroon Tiger reports it:

“The course is expected to outline various key concepts in Black feminism and critical cultural theory and methodology. Described as “an interdisciplinary survey of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) culture and politics” in the course’s syllabus, the class will serve as an in-depth look into critical, social and cultural theory that will vastly benefit the Morehouse community.”

The course (History and Culture of Black LGBT, HSOC 300, CRN: 45022) is open for registration under the sociology department on Tigernet. It will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:50 P.M. to 5:05 P.M.
