Politically and culturally sensitive topics will be discussed during this class with some topics being heavier than others. We will approach highly sensitive subjects including state-sanctioned violence, police brutality, criminality and systemic oppression. The course educator has undergone significant Diversity, Inclusion and Sensitivity trainings to properly support students in understanding and processing this information. Please note that this course involves the mention of "suicide" and information on King's extramarital fair, both of which were topics of the FBI's COINTELPRO letter sent to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1964. The letter, crafted to blackmail King, exposed his affair and deemed his leadership as fraudulent, with the FBI concluding that he should end his life for the betterment of the nation.
