This course will teach students how to navigate contentious discussions concerning race in the age of Trump. We will explore how media are handling and mishandling the use of race in the current political environment, how to honestly contend with the issue of race across political lines, and compare and contrast the coverage of race during the Trump era to contentious eras from the mid-20th century to early 20th century. Students will learn how to produce publishable reports on the 2022 midterm election cycle on the national and local levels. The class is being designed for a mix of liberal, conservative and independent-minded students.
