"How do we talk about Black history and racism in the United States on college campuses? In a series of essays, Professor Leonard Moore outlines how he has taught courses on African American history at colleges with a largely white student body. As an African American professor, he has had to find ways to teach to a diverse classroom, but one that is often dominated by white students with little prior knowledge of this history. Moore discusses how his love of history and drive to teach have emerged from his own experiences, and how those experiences have also shaped how he approaches the oft-challenging task of teaching history. He also discusses how racism and bias are ingrained in the African American experience throughout US history"--, Provided by publisher
