This class was tough.
Dr. Curry is an amazing professor which really helps as this course is quite difficult. It explores the origin of race as well as its sub term racism and how race and racism evolved from being a classification tool to a concept that degrades and calls for discrimination.
The highlight of this course was a book we read called Between the World and Me. It opens your eyes to so many hidden agendas of this nation in regards to race as well as a verbal illustration of what it means to be black in America.

Advice for students:
You have to have an open mind and almost a non bias attitude when the course first starts. We've come so accustomed to the notion of racism in its derogatory connotation and not historically what it was set to be. Some of the information will make you very sad and angry depending on the type of person you are but overall the course gives you an amazing insight on the history of race and racism.
