    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it offers a unique method for learning about the African Diaspora. The professor does not just go over the factual events of the past; he addresses issues of the present that may have been caused by the different stages of the African Diaspora including the Middle Passage. After taking the class I constantly reflect on social issues of today and examine how they connect to the Diaspora.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the assignments that were part of the writing portfolio. We were allowed to choose a topic discussed in class and then we addressed the assignment to someone we knew, like a friend or family member. These assignments were a chance to explain certain topics in our own words and they really helped me acquire a strong grasp of concepts like polyculturalism versus multiculturalism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep a strong understanding of the book, "Between the World and Me," by Ta Nehisi Coates throughout the semester because the professor refers back to it more than any other book in the class.
