Not too easy. Not too difficult.
At Baylor University, a Baptist private university in the South where blacks make up 7% of the population, our discussion-based class encouraged conversations that were completely out of the norm outside the black community. Our diverse space shared different perspectives from those of different races, backgrounds, and interests, and worked to build everybody's learning.
We had presentations at the end of the year where each student had to teach the class on a topic of their choice, really showing different issues from the lens of each individual's research. These ranged from mass incarceration, stereotypes, portrayal in the media to even the perception of the "uneducated" slang often used in minority communities.

Advice for students:
Be open to different ideas to build your own perspective, you didn't do this class right if you walked out the same as you walked in.
