Really informative and changed my perception of "how the West was won".

Very informative class. Charles did a great job with the slides and made them come alive. I enjoyed hearing about his personal experiences. 

Asians in America (Winter Term 2022)

Participant Testimonials:

The guest speakers from different Asian immigrant groups was a wonderful addition.

Wish I had had this understanding of Asian Americans and the challenges they have faced in the United States much sooner in my life.

Boston v. New York: The Colonial Period to the 21st Century (Spring Term 2019)

Participant Testimonials:

Charlie was so very knowledgeable about New York and Boston, because he's lived and worked in both cities. There was nothing he couldn't answer from personal experience. He's a true scholar who could patiently, and with humor, answer anything asked. Charlie's descriptions, photos, and anecdotes about New York and Boston historical personalities were fascinating.

Very well organized, great visuals, very well presented.
