    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It shares a new perspective on everything we've been taught about the history of people of African descent or the diaspora. It opens your mind to things you may not have thought of before. The class challenges you to think and step out of your comfort zone.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing I can say is that I learned about myself and who I am. I was challenged to think differently than I was used and it has given me a more open mindset. I feel that it is very important to have an open mind when taking this course because some of the things taught are often hard to accept as truth. Another thing you'll learn is to never be over awed by authority, it's okay to ask questions an important to do your own research and not to always take a persons word as your own truth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would truly advise to be very open minded. Of course no one can force you to believe anything which is where questions and research come in. Search the information and ask as many questions as necessary to bring about clarification and understanding.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I love this class because you learn a lot and the professor doesn't make the curriculum more difficult than it needs to be. You'll walk out of each lecture feeling like you've learned something. You'l take 2-3 tests, a quiz on the map of Africa, a handful of readings and discussion posts, and a reflection essay. You also won't have to spend a lot on books, he created his own that you can buy at the off campus bookstore for less than $15

    Course highlights:

    Highlights include: African diaspora Traditional African Worldview Traditional African upbringing Different tribes & their traditional folklore & gods Important terms & concepts Slavery & Colonization

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and pay attention and you should get an A... he doesn't give out any "busy work", he cares more about the learning experience and how it shapes the way you view the world we live in today

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to those who wish to learn ALL scopes of history, not just what was bleached white.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what public schooling K-12 didn't teach me about my people and was challenged to seek out more knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, especially if you are not black. Know your privilege and know that you chose to take this class and should be willing to be open and learn about the African diaspora. You are paying for this course so you should take the time to research, properly pronounce the names, be aware of where the tribes reside, etc.
