This class has been one of the most interesting classes I've taken at UCLA. This was my first Black Studies class and just when you think you are educated on topics like racism and Black History, this class shows how we don't really know much about African American studies, but the surface of it. For this class, you do have to read articles, but I didn't mind reading them because they were so intriguing. My TA was awesome as well and you can tell that everyone is so passionate on this topic and I have never seen a more passionate professor than Pierre and the other professors that helped her teach this topic. I would take this class again, it isn't much work. You watch the lectures, you have two discussion posts each week and one discussion post in the week of your midterm and final. If you watch the lectures and do the reading and take detailed notes, you are good to go for the midterm and final. Got a perfect score on my discussion post, midterm, and final!

This class is pretty interesting and informative and you get to learn a lot about black studies. If you take it during summer there are three lectures per week with readings accompanied and sometimes there are also screenings to watch, which can be a lot of work so it's very important to stay on track. The grading consists of 30% discussion board questions, 35% midterm and 35% final. Midterm and final are short answer and long essay questions, both open book. The lectures are done by multiple professors so it's really nice to get different perspectives. I definitely recommend this class for everyone!

This class was online and super easy GE. Just had weekly discussion posts and then an open note midterm and final that was based on the lectures that were posted. Also had to write an essay for a novel, but not a ton of work and interesting information
