Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor is very knowledgable and encourages us to apply our knowledge of the past to contemporary issues. He pushes us to use different methods of learning in order to gain a more holistic understanding of the subject.
By taking this course, I was exposed to a topic that is often skipped or breezed through in American history. The main focus of the class was to really learn about the Black Campus Movement in different US locations, so there is little emphasis on tests or written assignments. Instead, the class is mainly centered around reading four different books for the semester, each of which focuses on a different school or region during this time. This class is also heavily discussion-based, so I was not only exposed to historical information from the books and the professor, but students' opinions on the effectiveness of the movement and how we can apply such methods to today's issues.

Advice for students:
Read the assigned readings. It will help to participate in classroom discussions, and you will definitely want to participate in classroom discussions. Also, if an assignment is given, do not procrastinate. The professor will give just enough time to complete the assignment, but quality is important.
