Most students were happy with this course and report that Professor Davis set a powerful and positive example, allowing for respectful and open discourse. Some students feel, however, that the class focused disproportionately on race, and specific race(s), rather than embracing the topics of this course more fully. Some students also report feeling uncomfortable participating if they were coming from backgrounds or viewpoints not validated by the course and instruction. A few students suggest that Professor Davis referred to notes too much in class and this impacted their ability to stay engaged.
