things we are reading in the books are not adequate to
describe the reality. For example, just yesterday in the
course on "Blacks and Jews" we have a whole chapter in
the book called "Black Zion," on a particular group of
black Jews in Atlanta. But when the students actually
went to that community, they came back saying, that
chapter did not prepare me for what I experienced...what
I experienced was so much more complex. That is the
exhilaration- people really are actively learning and
not just digesting something cognitively, intellectually.
They are experiencing the way real people act and they
will remember that."
