    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes I would recommend it because the experience of Africans in America and the Diaspora is broad and deep. The study of that experience was fully examined, beginning in Africa, the birthplace of civilization and humanity and will extend to the history of blacks in America.

    Course highlights:

    Class sessions were composed of lectures, discussions, exercises, film screenings, media and textual analysis in an online format.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class for the Experience. Attend office hours. Ask questions if unsure.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like to read about African history then this is the perfect class to take. You will learn about the African diaspora and about African and African American cultural history and heritage. Also to get a better understanding about other racial and ethnic group especially if you are looking for a class outside your comfort zone. If you like to brag about what you learn to your roommate(s), just like me, then this is definitely the class you should take. We are always discussing interesting topics that relate to modern and recent issues that are occurring globally. If you want to motive yourself intellectually then I recommend taking an African/African American course because it requires a lot of critical thinking and knowing and learning the contribution of African legacies.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about other leaders who played critical role in the advancement of African Americans. When learning about the Civil Rights I always hear about Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., but taking this specific course I learned various of people who helped string many of success in African American communities. For example, Asa Randolph Phillip, helped construct the famous march on Washington (a protest that demanded equal job opportunities and same equal right) on august 28, 1963. From my impression, I thought it was Martin Luther King Jr. who created the famous march, but in reality he was just playing his role. My favorite highlight was learning that Haiti had the biggest slave revolt that occurred in 1803. Not only that, but as a result of the rebellion Napoleon Bonaparte (French military and political leader) decided to sell the famous Louisiana purchase to America. The United States wanted the Mississippi River, but in the end they benefitted from the purchase.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to do the reading materials because the pop quizzes are based on the textbooks and the lectures. Make sure you go to her office hours to get a better understanding how she constructs her class and her expectations of every assignments. It is very critical to follow the specific rubric when doing the writing assignments because points will be deducted!
