Often people cannot distinguish between race, racial identity and ethnicity. In this course, we explore the path toward race and ethnic identity development. We also provide students with the tools and skills to understand how to develop a positive racial identity. Students are provided with an opportunity to learn about what it means to be a Black man in America and how to identify and classify racial stereotypes.
