Customer Reviews

Love this podcast

Very informative.


Just stumbled upon this and an so happy that I did. I just watched the first class on Du Bois and can't wait to watch the next. Kudos to Stanford for having the foresight to record the classes for future reference. Will also look for the text books used and the suggested reading materials.

Malcolm X

I'm pretty disappointed in the Malcolm X lecture. We have to take education much more seriously. I wish I could have a word with this professor.
