    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Being in that class, I learned a lot about myself as a Black Woman, an American Citizen, and history that I was never told about in Elementary, Middle School, or High School. I learn about the political realm of racism and how it is systematic. I learn how we are more distinguishly separated than before as a country. And the false story of the "colorblind." I recommend people of color and whites and anyone to learn their history and how things are going now that is more subtle than before. You will see how we did not improve but declined when it comes to racism nationally and globally.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Coates had the class and I read Let Nobody Turn Us Around by Manning Marable. I really enjoyed the writings of Marcus Garvy, Ida B. Wells, and Olaudah Equiano. Olaudah Equiano was the most exceptional because he wrote about his African village, their culture, how he got taken away from it, and everything that happened on the ship during the Trans-Atlantic Trade. It is interesting because it came from someone first hand who experienced it all and gave his side of the story. The Danger of a Single Story is not hearing the other side. I enjoyed it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material, take notes, and when he says minimum of 10 pages and you do the minimum he will give you the minimum grade. BUT! If you excel the papers, he will give you what you deserve. Be very precise in your papers. You may have to type up to at least 30 pages when he assigns you to write 10 to 15 pages because you are writing about what you learned that entire week into one paper. He teaches you HOW to think, not WHAT to think. He will teach you about Research and even have you do research and present it to the class. He's loud and very energetic. He's constantly available and forgets meetings so e-mail him the day before a reminder about a meeting you may have with him. Also, the class is not a honors class but it is set up like one.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Jamison is an excellent professor. Not only is he an amazing teacher, he is passionate about his work. I learned so much taking this course and it was overall super interesting. He teaches in an unbiased way and lets you form your own opinions. He pushes you outside your comfort zone but overall I was a much better student, and now I am a much more open minded thinker after taking his course,

    Course highlights:

    Taking this course, you learn much more about the histiry of blacks. I learned things I've never learned in just a general history class. I also learned how to be a better student and thinker. I took so much away from the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up on your reading and go into the class with an open mind!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this class! It enlightened me to so many things, I'm so happy I took this class. It's a discussion-based class, and it's really nice to hear everyone's input!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Malcolm X, James Baldwin, and the Black Pather Party for Self-Defense. It was so worth all the readings. It resonated with me so much!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a lot of reading, all you have to do is the reading, and you will be perfectly fine! Break the readings down.
