  • Was very informing and much will be taken in my monthly writings to others for Racial and social justice trainings and needs .

    The course was informative. It provided detailed information on key events but didn't overburden you with too much information that you wouldn't be able to comprehend. I recommend the course to those wanting to learn more about black-American History.

    This subject is essential and compelling, and the course is incredibly well presented. The instructor Clint Smith III (author of the great book How the Word is Passed) INVITES us to learn really hard things in a way that's so clear and gentle, it recruits us to share the lessons we take away with as many people as we can.

    The material is easy to follow as well as allowing me to do additional research.
    It would be beneficial to share in schools, showing the truth is not a threat but a reality.
    Thank you for your time and effort.
