"Doc" Simpson is a phenomenal instructor! He's become my favorite teacher hands down. It's because of him that I chose AAS as a minor. He's like a Dad and extremely hilarious! His lectures are by far the BEST at WIU. Very Insightful dude. You leave his class wiser each day

The class is very helpful when wanting to know learn more about the African American Ethnicity. "DOC" is very helpful when it comes to the class. He makes you feel the moment of the class.

Dr.Simpson is awesome! He is passionate about his work. "Doc" is an amazing professor. When he teaches, he puts you in the moment so that we can really "get it" so to speak. I would definitely recommend him! Make sure that you're ON TIME for class!!

BEST TEACHER EVER!! He has a great personality , very funny and energetic. He relates all past events to today basically making it easier for us to understand black culture. Always go to class. The quizzes and tests are very easy because the grad students and him give you the answers if you ask for them. He is also a ALPHA :) PLEASE TAKE THIS CLASS

I would not take him if you have even half a brain. He has no idea what he is talking about if it's not about the white man keeping the black man down.

Dr. Simpson is a nice guy, and much of the course information was very interesting. However, prepare for about a month of "how White people keep the black man down," at the beginning of class. While it was pretty true back then, I got extremely uncomfortable. And if you do take him, GO TO CLASS! Attendance is a huge part of your grade.

The best professor at WIU. Very helpful to all students. I strongly advise his classes to anyone. Allows in-class discussions and accessible critical thinking which is recommended for higher education. Can't wait to take another one of his classes.

Doc as everyone know him is very lively. He always provides you with the tools necessary to pass the class. Not only is he interesting to learn from but the content of the material is helpful in everyday life. Love! Love! LOVE this professor! Must experience a true African American Professor with this much passion at work, take his classes.

The best teacher at that school. He's very helpful and understanding. He expects you to be there on time and pay attention in his class. 5 quizzes (multiple choice 10q's), 2 tests (same as quizzes), 2 papers over documetaries. I would highly recommend taking him. :) You won't regret it

This was the most boring and useless class I ever took here at WIU. Each test question has a "none of these" answer option which makes it unfair for a 100 class. Everything about this guy seemed to get on my nerves too, you will see what I mean. I would recommend any other multicultural class over this one. DO NOT TAKE HIM!

by far my favorite teacher i have had since getting to western. amazing class. even though we had a humongous class, he still had us participate in class instead of just lecturing. i learned a lot that i didnt know and stayed interested thru the whole class. i would recommend this class to anyone. im white btw.
