This class was pretty awesome. You are unlikely to meet a more engaging and passionate person than Prof OuYang. She's a practicing civil rights and immigration attorney and has worked on a lot of important cases so she knows a ton. She is clearly really passionate about her work but cares just as much about her students and teaching. Our class took place in the middle of the Qing Wu affair, involving a legal immigrant who was in deportation proceedings (look up the case!), so we got a behind-the-scenes look at how civil rights law works (and doesn't work) in reality.
There's one "textbook" which is basically a compilation of historical excerpts, court decisions, and contemporary articles. The course is pretty comprehensive, beginning with slavery and the resulting laws and decisions (ie Dred Scott) and ending with post-9/11 policies regarding immigration, racial profiling, etc. She expects students to read the cases carefully.
Only downsides: The class was a little dry sometimes. There's definitely some room for discussion but this is not an open forum for philosophers; Prof OuYang is looking for answers to specific questions about the cases. We all learned a lot but it got a little long sometimes (especially since she usually held us at least 20 minutes past the 2 hour seminar)
But really--take this class. If you're like me, this class will change you. It will make you want to be an activist.
