Thursday, 11:50–1:15, Apr. 11
Instructor: Al Carroll
Stereotypes and falsehoods are often deliberately spread to justify inequality, prejudice, or domination of one group over another. This class will focus on the most common misunderstandings believed even by many of us who consider ourselves unprejudiced. The format will be question and answer with much discussion.
