Redirect does not work after clicking on About link

When I click on the about link and then click on courses, I get a black page this is my code

import React from 'react';
import { Route, NavLink, Redirect } from 'react-router-dom'; //import Route to use route path and NavLink to link the routes

//Add components from courses folder in order to have access to them
import HTML from './courses/HTML';
import CSS from './courses/CSS';
import JavaScript from './courses/JavaScript';

const Courses = () => (

  <div className="main-content courses">
    <div className="course-header group">
      <ul className="course-nav">
      {/*use nav link to redirect  */}
        <li><NavLink to='/courses/html'>HTML</NavLink></li>
        <li><NavLink to='/courses/css'>CSS</NavLink></li>
        <li><NavLink to='/courses/javascript'>JavaScript</NavLink></li>
    {/*Use routes to define routes for courses*/}
    <Route exact path="/courses" render={ () => <Redirect to="/courses/html" /> } />
    <Route path="/courses/html" component={HTML} />
    <Route path="/courses/css" component={CSS} />
    <Route path="/courses/javascript" component={JavaScript} />


export default Courses;

Hi Erik, can you post the code in your App.js? I just replaced the code you posted with the one I have after looking through it without finding any issue with it. It worked as I expected on mine. But I will like to see your App.js file if you are still having this issue.
