    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to African American Studies is a great class to take. It's takes you on a journey through centuries of history of Africans before and after they were brought to America. At the same, it's a class where topic of racial problems in society can be openly talked about and debated. It was an eye-opening experience.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the course was watching the documentary named "Brazil: A Racial Paradise?". The film was very interesting to watch and I leaned things that I never knew from the film. I learned that Brazil hold the second largest population of black people , behind Nigeria and was one of the last countries to abolish slavery. The documentary also brings to light, the true reality that Brazil still has racism, even though it claims to be a racial democracy or "racial paradise".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While you are reading, jot down notes. Pay attention closely to what the professor is saying and always write down what he writes up on the board. Always be prepared for pop quizzes. Bring the books to class. Be ready to talk in class.
