10:30 AM12:00 PM

Wilson Hall

Offered through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UAH

This course focuses on the different people who make up the United States and how through their interactions, the nation continues to grow as a result of this diversity. This growth through change has not always been easy, and there have been difficulties. Discussions include the detrimental, residual effects on groups such as Native Americans who were forcefully removed from their homeland and African Americans through the institutions of slavery and Jim Crow segregation. The course will explore how these historical policies and current day practices provide challenges for examining the past, handling the present, and preparing for the future.

Monday (4 sessions) | Cost: $25 | Instructor: D Smith | Live Virtual & In-Person, UAH Campus
