    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class isn't difficult with many opportunities to improve your grade, while really learning about American History. I would really recommend this class to someone who enjoys learning about history, and has no problem doing a discussion weekly. The professor very accessible for questions on your individual grades, or discussions about a topic.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course, for me, was learning that prior to Rosa Park's infamous bus sit in, another young lady named Claudette Colvin, a 15-year-old girl at the time, was the first to refuse to move from her seat. When placed under arrest, she resisted. Unfortunately, Colvin’s lawyer knew that sometimes one has to pick their battles. He knew that Colvin would be deemed too immature and a “bad girl” by the White press after finding out she was due to have a child out of wedlock. This portrayal of Colvin would only be more of a step back rather than a step forward in the fight for Civil Rights. This prompted the decision to wait until a more virtuous plaintiff came along, which was Rosa Parks.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise all students considering this course to read the assigned chapters as well as the Case Commentaries. Time management is key, as the window to hand in assignments are small and dependent on how much you have prepared. Do not hesitate to reach out to your professor should you have any questions.
