A Few Big Assignments
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I personally really enjoyed the subject matter of this class. The topic was the history of race in America, and how the concept of race was created over time to sustain the slave trade and the early economy of the New World. Dr. Holden was incredibly knowledgeable, and was always interesting to listen to. She did not lecture for hours, rather she would often give a small presentation and then open up the class for larger discussion.
I essentially gained a new foundation and way to look at the world. This class opened up my eyes to the hypocrisy of the history of the United States, and I know it did the same for others too, encouraging us to become activists and voices for minority groups who often get ignored.

Advice for students:
If you are a good writer, and don't mind doing small readings twice a week, this class will be a breeze. Sometimes it was hard simply because of the subject matter, but overall this class was eye-opening and enjoyable.
