PROFESSOR ANDREA L. OLIVER, PH. D

African American History IS American History

Studying the rich history of this nation's past is a worthy endeavor.  Examining that history from the perspective of a conventionally underrepresented people gives us a unique perspective and one that helps us to appreciate that history ever more deeply.  It invites us to learn more, to think more critically and to find usable lessons for a promising future.  In this class, we build a community of learners where every contribution is respected and all opinions are considered.  Come join us!

All in all, I really enjoyed your class this summer! You elaborated on topics that were familiar and educated me on things that I should have already known. I wish we had time to cover more topics because you truly made the class a lot of fun. Because of your class, I asked my
grandma about how it was for her growing up, and she could relate to a lot of the topics we covered. Taking this class made me realize how much black history is glanced over, but a class like this should be offered in high school. Thank you for the everyday laughs, reality checks, and spoonfuls of daily knowledge.

By far I have learned more about history than any other class I have taken in my life. Every topic was profound to me, so it made it hard to pick the most impactful ones. With no doubt, the Racialization of slavery, Congressional Reconstruction, and the Great Depression are all things we need to know about this nation in which we live in because these things are not being taught in today schools. Today they mislead the truth about the history of America this nation. Big thanks to my teacher Professor Oliver for making my clouds clear on the knowledge of what I now know about history but
especially black history.

During the duration of this course, I’ve learned so much new information about
African American history. These past 6 weeks I’ve learned more history than did
12 years in public schools. From learning about Reconstruction, The Black
Panther Party, and to how W. E. B. Dubois co-founded the NAACP. I’ve enjoyed
this class not only because I’m passing, but also learning key information that
motivates me to read more and stay woke to the “America” we live in. I’d
encourage any college student to take this course to get a better understanding of
today’s world
