We will explore Holocaust History in order to find lesons for today, such as how to combat, effectively, bullies, bigots (any expression of prejudice), and abusers (domestic violence), all of which are forms of corruption (abuse of power). We will retell stories of rescuers and resisters to find inspiration to battle today's evils. And we will discuss faith after the Holocaust.
Perhaps tucked away in the back of our minds is a simplistic notion that a long time ago the heavens opened and the Bible-King James Version, black leather binding, your name printed in gold, and a red locater ribbon-slipped out of the hands of an angel to God's people. Of course, when we really think about it, we know it was not anything like that. It's a much more complex-and fascinating-story.

For many years North Carolina played a secondary role in presidential politics. That changed dramatically in 2008 when Democrat Obama narrowly won the state's electoral votes. Trump carried the state in 2016,but few states received more attention from the candidates and the media. If the state turned purple in presidential politics, Republicans achieved unprecedented gains in state politics, notably on the legislative level. And statewide elections were as competitive as could be. We will look at the reasons for these trends and the connections between national and state politics. Class will also look at factors unique to North Carolina. And we will compare the quality of current leadership to that of earlier times.Finally, where are we headed as a state and country.

Has southern distinctiveness almost faded away today? Are southerners the only group to whom "politically-correct" limitations on humor do not apply?
