I loved how a lot of this Module centered on black voices while also giving helpful information that I definitely will bring into both my daily and professional life. I learned a lot of terms that I didn't know before and about facets of racism in America that I had no idea about. Definitely an informative and super efficient way to educate myself on what's going on around me.
