This class is the easiest of Ws. You learn quite a lot of important concepts as well; I would even suggest that this class be mandatory for students here, since it is so crucial to understanding American social struggles, and everyone can take away something important from this course. Highly recommend this course for anyone who wants an easy GE, while also wanting to learn a bit too. 10/10

This class is so great! You learn about very important issues and Dr. Pierre is a great lecturer. The books we read for this class are very interesting, and the readings and lectures are too. Dr. Pierre brings in amazing guest lecturers and I really like that. You can tell she's very smart and passionate and that's great to be around (it was an online class, but I still like her energy).

There are not that many assignments week-to-week, but I say the midterm and final exam are time consuming.

I had Joelle Julien as my T.A. and she was great too!

Overall, great class, great professor, and I would take it again.

Amazing class, if you need to knock off a GE this is a go-to. The class is at your pace and all assignments are easy as long as you pay attention to the lectures. You will have a blast while educating yourself on important issues!!

This was the perfect class all-around. You have to submit a discussion post every week and the grading is very fair with that. The exams follow really closely with the class materials. We were given about a week to do them so you could split them up which made it stress-free. Lectures are pretty short and are very well-done. The class teaches you very important lessons about African American history and the challenges they face in society today. My TA, Mauri, was very fair with grading and had a lot of passion for the subject. So, I highly recommend her.

This is a great class that teaches valuable material! The grading consists of a midterm, final, discussion posts, and a one page mini essay. The mini essay is great as the prof gives you 3 opportunities throughout the quarter to submit the mini essay, so if you have a lighter week 3 you can get the assignment out of the way early, or you can wait til week 9 to submit. While tedious, the readings are interesting and informative. There are 2 discussion posts you have to answer every week with a brief 4-5 sentence response. Then you must respond to 2 discussion posts in 3-4 sentences, so not a huge time investment. The midterm and the final are short answer and essay based, but if you did the discussion posts you’ll be set. The lectures are filmed and edited by the UCLA film dept, so lectures seem more like mini documentaries. And they are SHORT. Most were under 30 minutes. If you are good at managing time then this asynchronous class is for you. Sucks to not have more communication with the prof and TA tho. Wish it hadn’t taken til week 10 to get my midterm back from week 5

I adored this class. Prof Pierre is an interesting lecturer and the actual material taught in the class I found super intriguing. There is a fair amount of reading but you don't really have to read all of it. Is is helpful however to read the two required books, which were overall both good reads. I would absolutely recommend this class as an easy GE, as well as if you are interested in this area of study.

I took this class asynchronously even the discussion were asynch. It was a great class though. The prerecorded lectures were precise and informative. Quite a bit of writing for the class and discussion section. But def doable.

I learned so much more than I was expecting to about the history of the United States through this class, and believe that this class should be required for every college student! The professor Dr. Pierre was incredibly kind as well, considering the hardships a lot of students have faced during the pandemic. The workload is manageable and the class was asynchronous! Definitely would recommend this as a GE to fulfill one of your requirements!
