community to provide unique engaged learning opportunities. This engaged learning

States, in both a historical and contemporary setting, while also paying attention to race,
racism, and comparisons of discrimination and inequality, as it occurs in the United
States. Students are required to volunteer remotely, 3 hours per week, and attend
remote discussions on Thurs, 4-5:30 pm. This 3-credit course is offered Fall & Winter
