Details about this class

Hello students! Our course will be hosted on PCC's D2L platform. There you will find the syllabus, assignments, Zoom links, lecture videos, and quizzes. Exams will be held live in class.


We will have one meeting a week at Rock Creek (Thursdays at noon) and one on Zoom. There will also be video lectures posted each week on D2L. Students will need access to a computer that can access Zoom. It could just be a Zoom app on your phone.

There are two texts required for the class; Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Joy DeGruy and The Death Gap by Richard Ansell.
