Course Description:

Though the United States has portrayed itself as a land of freedom and equality, there have been groups of people who have struggled to find that freedom and equality. For many of these individuals, they were forced into bonds, crushed under laws, and pushed to the margins of society. Though slavery was abolished, many continue to suffer. This course will examine one of the pillars that undergirded this system: racism. How did racism develop? How did it take hold in this country? What exactly is racism? And, perhaps most importantly for the future, what has been done about it and what remains to be done?
