Together, we will explore these and many other questions as we survey American history while emphasizing the ways ethnic and racial minoritieshave shaped American identity from pre-historic times through the present. By examining or re-examining American history through the lens of these and other racial and ethnic groups we will develop an understanding of key concepts and definitions such as race/class/gender;ethnic group, racial group, minority/majority; institutional racism; social construction of race versus biological construction, resistance, and change.
