This class was tough.
The textbook for this course was Ethics Across Cultures. Most ethics classes only deal with white US-based ethics. It was very empowering.
This course also covered women and Native Americans. Being both a woman and a Native American, I was able to find, through my research that women's right to vote was restored in the 1920s, not initially gained--they had the right to vote in the Colonies, and removal of that was a backlash from the War of 1812. I also found out that the first Native American to graduate from college was Caleb Cheeshahteaumuck of the Wampanoag Nation, graduating from Harvard in 1665, and the first Native American woman to graduate from college was Susan LaFlesche Picotte, MD, of the Omaha Nation in 1889, from Women's Medical College of PA.

Advice for students:
If research is not your thing, you will struggle in this course. The basic structure is there, but you will need to do research on your own to prove your assignment completion. If learning human interest stories appeals to you, figure out how to mesh that with research, and you'll succeed.
