To the future students of the wonderful Race and Oral History, I wish you the best experience in this one of a kind class. Make the most of it, no matter what group you work with, no matter who you interview, look for the positive experiences that impact you. Yes, you learn skills on how to be a better interviewer and historian, but this class is so much more than what you get in the classroom. Hopefully in the future when the COVID era passes behind us, the level of engagement you will be able to have with your community partners will be tenfold, but no matter what, make those connections. This class ultimately teaches you how to be a better human, how to listen, how to understand, something all of us could use in this time. Cherish your time here, learn what you can from our Professors and TA’s and at the end of the day, enjoy it!
