    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is important to know your history and even if it is not your history it is important to learn about other cultures to have a better understanding of the world. It is always great to have a diverse mind. This class was more than just race however, it talked about gender, sex, class, and much more.

    Course highlights:

    Intersexuality, the meaning of diaspora, pan-African movement, sex, race and gender as social constructs. Gender roles have been constructed by society. Race is a modern idea, race today is based off color however during the Ancient Greek times race had no relation to color or physical feauture. They were divided by class, region, status, and language.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, do all reading logs, do all extra credit, STUDYYYYYY, do all assignments ontime. Talk to upperclassmen to help with essays and museum assignments. Go to office hours and class everyday!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because I learned a lot about the people, the movements, and the art that emerged from the African diaspora. This course exposed me to numerous topics that many high school classes didn't speak of. I really enjoyed the discussions we had in class because we spoke on real world issues that affected everyone.

    Course highlights:

    There are numerous highlights that emerged from this course. We talked a lot about race, gender, and sexuality, and how they correspond with one another. I learned more about slavery in other parts of the world, and how the term "black" emerged in our society. We were taught the true motives behind colonization and how African countries were greatly impacted.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, students need to read all of the assigned texts thoroughly because they will be the center of discussions, and pop quizzes are to be expected.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is required for all freshmen and rightfully so! It is a great class to learn about the true history of the African culture and also a great class to discuss controversial issues. The classes are small so the intimate conversations were great. I also loved it because we taught the teacher and vice versa.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being in a environment where sharing your opinion was encouraged. This class really makes you think. I learned about many influential African-descended people especially during the Harlem Renaissance which was a huge cultural movement in the 1920s.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be well organized and disciplined. Be sure to read every assignment and take great notes. I suggest to write in margins of the book and annotate each paragraph. Study groups are also a big help.
