Class Experience

I am an international human rights lawyer and have engaged in this material for decades.  As well, I have taught these concepts at the University level, in law school and now on Outschool for the past two years in the Live version of this class.  
There will be homework assigned each week based on the materials given. Learners will present their homework in class and engage in online discussion and debate.  Beyond the weekly homework, there will be one final project to be posted for critical analysis from all the learners.   
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The painful and sometimes ugly details of apartheid are necessary to discuss in order for learners to understand what came before and developed from South African apartheid. If your learner is particularly sensitive to these issues or you are uncertain if the material may be too mature, this may not be the right class for you. However, the material will be presented as respectfully as possible.
